California Highway Patrol officer killed, second injured in crash on highway

Both officers were wearing seat belts.

The two officers were assigned to a "maximum enforcement" Christmas Eve patrol for drunken drivers and speeders and were parked on the shoulder of southbound I-880 near the Winton Avenue on-ramp when the vehicle left the roadway and struck them from behind, Nacke said.

Sanchez said the name of the alleged driver of the Cadillac, a 22-year-old Hayward man, is not being released now. "So it kind of gives you an idea of the speeds that were involved in this accident".

He was married with three kids, CHP said in a press conference.

He said that it's not just because the CHP lost one of its own but that too many fatalities have occurred, just in the past couple of weeks, in the Bay area because of people driving under the influence.

Andrew Camilleri Sr. 33, of Tracy, a CHP officer since March, was killed in the crash at 11:20 p.m. Sunday, the Highway Patrol said. Camilleri, who was in the right front seat, died at the hospital. Sanchez said he believes that the suspect was "coming home from a party and had obviously had too much to drink and maybe too much to smoke".

Officer Camilleri is survived by his wife, daughter and two sons along with his parents, brother and sister.

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement that he is "deeply saddened" by Camilleri's death. He was treated at a hospital and has since been released. In honor of Camilleri, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

"We join his family, companions and the whole California Highway Patrol in grieving his passing and in regarding his forfeit", the announcement read. Velasquez suffered minor injuries and will recover physically.
