CHP officer killed in Hayward freeway crash

I-880 in Hayward closed by accident that injured CHP officers

The man, who "chose to be irresponsible" and is hospitalized in serious condition, will face a slew of felony charges upon his release from the hospital, Sanchez said.

CHP officials did not provide details of the injuries or the cause of the collision.

The collision was reported at 12 a.m. near A Street and involved a auto that reportedly rear ended a CHP patrol vehicle. Both had safety belts on. The CHP says it appears the driver of the Cadillac was not only drunk, but under the influence of drugs and was coming home from a party.

Experts trust a purportedly inebriated 22-year-old - associated with being affected by liquor and maryjane - was going home from a gathering when he floated into the correct shoulder and hit the stopped vehicle from behind, as indicated by Assistant Chief Ernest Sanchez.




All three suffered injuries and were rushed by ambulances to local hospitals. He had been with the CHP for one year and four months.

The slain officer, identified as Andrew Camilleri, 33, of Tracy, leaves behind his parents, siblings, a wife, a 12-year-old daughter, and two sons, ages 6 and 2.

Gov. Jerry Brown said flags at the state Capitol would be flown at half-staff in Camilleri's honor. Velasquez suffered minor injuries and will recover physically.

"Anne and I are profoundly disheartened to learn of the very bad loss of Officer Camilleri, who kicked the bucket yesterday while attempting to guard our groups. We join his family, friends and the entire California Highway Patrol in mourning his death and in honoring his sacrifice", he said in the statement.
