At least one dead in fiery I-5 crash in Oceanside

Two California Highway Patrol officers were injured after a crash early on Monday Dec. 25 2017. 

Camilleri's partner, Jonathan Velasquez, was treated for injuries and released.

Assistant Chief Ernest Sanchez said the driver was traveling at a high speed on Interstate 880 in Hayward when he slammed into the back of a CHP SUV parked on the right shoulder.

Sanchez said the suspected intoxicated driver was coming home from a party and "obviously had too much to drink and too much to smoke" when the collision happened, the East Bay Times reports.

33-year-old Andrew Camilleri died of his injuries hours later.

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

The driver of the vehicle was also taken to the hospital with major injuries.




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

"This is not the way we wanted to celebrate Christmas Day", Sanchez said. Governor Brown's statement on death of CHP officer: "Anne and I are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic loss of Officer Camilleri, who died yesterday while working to keep our communities safe".

He survived by his wife, Rosanna, a 12-year-old daughter and sons ages 6 and 2.

In honor of Camilleri, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

Velasquez, who was sitting in the driver's seat, was injured and later released from the hospital.

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