CHP officer killed by suspected drunk driver Christmas Eve
CHP Officer Andrew Camilleri, a 33-year-old married father of three children, was in the passenger seat of the CHP SUV on the shoulder of Interstate 880 in Hayward when the vehicle was struck, said Assistant Chief Ernest Sanchez. He is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana and is in serious condition at a hospital. Velasquez suffered minor injuries and will recover physically.
The collision was first reported around 11:30 p.m. Sunday near State Route 92 and the Winton Avenue on-ramp.
Walcott said the driver who struck the vehicle was taken to a hospital.
CHP officials will hold a press conference at 10 a.m.to provide further details.
CHP confirmed Monday morning that one of the officers had died of his injuries.
"This needs to stop", Sanchez said, adding that he is not only brokenhearted about Camilleri's death, but also angry.
Sanchez said the suspected intoxicated driver was coming home from a party and "obviously had too much to drink and too much to smoke" when the collision happened, the East Bay Times reports. Jerry Brown released a statement on Camilleri's death. Officer Camilleri is survived by his wife, Rosanna; a daughter and two sons, ages 12, 6 and 2.
Flags at the Capitol will be flown at half-staff in the fallen officer's honor.
A driver drifted off the road from the freeway and hit the right rear part of the CHP cruiser.
