CHP Officers Seriously Injured In Horrific Highway 880 Crash

A California Highway Patrol officer died in a serious vehicle crash on Highway 880 near Hayward, according to reports. He is now being treated at Eden Medical Center.

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. According to a post on Twitter, CHP says they suspect the driver was impaired while driving.

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

CHP affirmed Monday morning that one of the officers had passed on of his wounds. 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".

Two officers on a routine CHP watch on Christmas Eve were inside the vehicle at the time, he said.
