Hayward, Calif.—On a day where families should be together and enjoying each other's company, one family is mourning the loss of a loved one.

Officer Andrew Camilleri was killed after his patrol car was hit as it was parked on the side of Interstate 880 in Hayward.

Another officer was injured but was treated and released from the hospital.

The California Highway Patrol said they will press charges against the suspected DUI driver.

"We have enough evidence and enough statements that have been made today to allow us to charge this individual, when he gets released from the local hospital, with some very serious felony charges," said Assistant Chief Ernie Sanchez.

The 22-year-old driver of that car is believed to have been drunk and high at the time of the crash.

Officer Camilleri leaves behind a wife, a 12-year-old daughter, and two sons ages six and two.

Governor Jerry Brown issued a statement this morning following Camilleri's death saying, "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. We join his family, friends and the entire California Highway Patrol in mourning his death and in honoring his sacrifice."
