On Sunday at 11:32 p.m., Camilleri, 33 of Tracy, and another CHP officer were inside a patrol car that was parked on the right shoulder of southbound Interstate Highway 880 in Hayward near the Winton Avenue on-ramp.

As the officers patrolled the highway, a speeding red Cadillac hit the back of their patrol car. Both officers were hospitalized and Camilleri was later pronounced dead, according to CHP officials.

The 22-year-old Hayward man driving the Cadillac is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana. He was taken to a hospital in serious condition, CHP officials said. His name has not yet been released.

Camilleri is survived by his wife Rosanna, three children, 12, 6 and 2 years old, his parents, a brother and a sister.
