REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California seizure-prone driver with a suspended license has been convicted for causing a double-fatal crash while having a seizure.

A San Mateo County jury on Wednesday found Rodney Corsiglia of San Bruno guilty on multiple counts of second-degree murder and vehicular manslaughter for the crash that killed two cousins in July 2012.

Authorities say Usbaldo Gomez and Arnulfo Picazo were inside a car at a red light in San Bruno when Corsiglia’s truck ran into them. Two others were injured in the chain-reaction collision that involved four vehicles.

Prosecutors say Corsiglia, a 51-year-old retired custodian, knew he posed a danger to the road but insisted on driving without a license. Corsiglia had caused seven seizure-related crashes between 2002 and 2011 when his license was permanently suspended.

He is scheduled for sentencing on July 30.
