Police said drugs are a factor in the collision.David Aggio and his wife were out for a late Saturday morning drive in his blue Ford Explorer. He’d come down from Rohnert Park to visit because she was temporarily working in Bakersfield.
Traveling in the northbound lane of Gosford Road about 11:50 a.m., the 54-year-old Aggio may have never seen the southbound white Honda Civic that crashed into his door with such ferocity it killed him instantly and tore off the smaller’s car front end.
