Calif. officer killed, another injured in Christmas Eve crash

The California Highway Patrol says a 22-year-old driver who struck a CHP patrol vehicle, killing an officer, was under the influence of alcohol and possibly marijuana while returning from a party. He is now being treated at Eden Medical Center. He was injured, but has been treated and released from the hospital.

The accident was reported at 11:59 p.m. Sunday just north of Highway 92.

CHP officer Andrew Camilleri, 33, was stopped in a marked vehicle near Winton Avenue on-ramp to Interstate 880 at about 11:32 p.m. Sunday when the wreck happened, according to the Golden Gate CHP Facebook page.

Camilleri and Velasquez, who was seated in the driver's seat, were participating in the department's Maximum Enforcement Patrol to ensure the safety of motorists during the holiday season.

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

Kennedy went on to question Petersen on when the last time he read the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Kennedy said Trump has also told him that he's counting on senators to reject his bad judicial picks.

CHP officials will hold a press conference at 10 a.m.to provide further details.

"This is not the way we wanted to celebrate Christmas Day", Sanchez said.

California Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement on the officers death Monday morning. He is survived by his wife, Rosanna; a daughter and two sons, ages 12, 6 and 2; and his parents, brother and sister. "We join his family, friends and the entire California Highway Patrol in mourning his death and in honoring his sacrifice".

The 22-year-old driver, identified only as a Hayward resident, was hospitalized with major injuries and is expected to face felony charges, officials said.
