Officials identify Delano family pastor involved in suspected DUI crash on Snow Road

The CHP declined to release the name of the driver who hit the patrol vehicle.

Two California Highway Patrol officers suffered major injuries late Sunday night when a driver slammed into their SUV as it was parked on the side of Highway 880 near Hayward, authorities said. He is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana and is in serious condition at a hospital. Another officer in the auto, Jonathan Velasquez, was treated at a hospital for lacerations and released Monday, said Sgt. Rob Nacke, a CHP spokesman.

Officers reacted in the blink of an eye before midnight to reports of an impact in the southbound paths of Interstate-880 only north of Highway 92 including a red auto and a CHP vehicle, Bay Area TV channel KPIX detailed.

Andrew Camilleri, 33, was married and had three children who expected their father to come home and help them open Christmas presents, said Asst.

The 22-year-old driver, distinguished just as a Hayward occupant, was hospitalized with real wounds and is required to confront crime accusations, authorities said.
