Bakersfield police investigate a crash Saturday afternoon on Gosford Road, just south of Stockdale Highway, that killed David Aggio, 54, of Rohnert Park. Witnesses told police the car that hit Aggio’s SUV had been speeding. 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.

Police said Rodolfo Contreras, 22, the driver of the Civic, lost control of his car as he crossed Stockdale Highway and struck the raised center divider, sending him into Aggio’s SUV. Witnesses reported he was speeding.

Paco,
On 3/8/2014 at approximately 0830 retired CDC San Quentin CO and later Santa Rosa #1 Parole Agent, David Aggio, was killed in Bakersfield by a drugged 22 year old out of control dirt bag driver. I was notified this morning by my ex PA2.
I met David when he was about 18. We had common interests and became good friends. About 14 years ago he became my office partner at SR1. He lived in Rohnert Park, was recently remarried and has two kids in college.
His daughter is an All American College wrestler. His son recently finished a hitch in the Navy and is attending Chico State.
David did the max in CDC before retiring. He will forever be 54 years old.
Bakersfield media has some information on this tragic event. Needless to say he was well loved and respected by family and friends.
Please write something as others may not be informed.
Sincerely,
Larry

You said it best Larry. Thanks.
