Alma Cresanto has been named as the deceased in a three-vehicle collision that occurred in Santa Rosa during the evening of October 20. Her two year-old daughter was also severely injured. Ms. Cresanto was 27 years-old and seven months pregnant. Authorities say she was in the passenger seat of a GMC Acadia, an SUV. The driver of the vehicle, also 27, whose identity has not been released, tried to make a left turn from Santa Paula Street to Bradley Street, when the SUV was hit broadside by a Dodge pickup truck.  Ms. Cresanto perished at the scene. Her daughter was diagnosed with severe head trauma and taken to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. A third car in the collision was apparently sideswiped.
