California Police Officer Dead, Another Injured in DUI Crash

A California Highway Patrol officer died after a drunken driver returning from a party slammed into the back of his parked patrol auto on a San Francisco Bay Area highway on Christmas Eve, the CHP said Monday. Another officer in the auto, Jonathan Velasquez, was treated at a hospital for lacerations and released Monday, said Sgt. Rob Nacke, a CHP spokesman.

The collision was first reported around 11:30 p.m. Sunday near State Route 92 and the Winton Avenue on-ramp.

"The impact was so severe that it turned a utility vehicle into a compact vehicle", a CHP official said at a Christmas morning news conference.

According to ABC7 in Los Angeles, 33-year-old Andrew Camilleri died after being hit on I-880 in Hayward.

"He had too much to drink and too much to smoke", Sanchez said.

"We come to you with broken hearts and also anger - not just because we've lost one of our own", Sanchez said. Camilleri is survived by his wife Rosanna, three children; 12, 6 and 2 years old; his parents, a brother and sister. Jerry Brown, who released a statement on the officer's death on Christmas.

In honor of Camilleri, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff. "We join his family, friends and the entire California Highway Patrol in mourning his death and honoring his sacrifice".

The driver, a Hayward resident, was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, most likely marijuana.
