CHP officer killed as patrol auto hit by drunken driver”

CHP Officer Hannah Walcott said officers responded shortly before midnight to reports of a collision in the southbound lanes I-880 just north of Highway 92 involving a red Chrysler 300 and a CHP patrol vehicle. He is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana and is in serious condition at a hospital.

Camilleri and his partner, Jonathan Velasquez, had stopped their patrol SUV on the right shoulder of the highway, southbound near the Winton Avenue exit, to monitor traffic using a radar gun and other equipment.

Officers responded shortly before midnight to reports of a collision in the southbound lanes of Interstate-880 just north of Highway 92 involving a red auto and a CHP vehicle, Bay Area television station KPIX reported. CHP officials will not release his name until he is in their custody, Sanchez said. Inside, in the passenger seat, was Officer Andrew Camilleri, a married father of three children.

"This needs to stop", Sanchez said, adding that he is not only brokenhearted about Camilleri's death, but also angry.

Camilleri had been with the CHP for a little more than a year and is survived by his wife, a daughter and two sons. 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". "Today is a tragic day".

California Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement on the officers death Monday morning.

Flags at the state Capitol will be flown at half-staff in honor of Camilleri, Brown said.
