VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old man who killed a rookie California Highway Patrol officer on Christmas Eve after he slammed his car into the back of the officer's parked patrol car has been charged with second-degree murder.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley on Tuesday identified Mohammed Ali, of Hayward, as the driver of a speeding Cadillac that drifted off Interstate 880 and crashed against Officer Andrew Camilleri's patrol SUV.

Camilleri's partner, Jonathan Velasquez, who was on the driver's seat, was treated at a hospital and released.

O'Malley said Ali is also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs and driving at speeds over 100 mph.

The officer' SUV was parked near on the intestate's shoulder watching for dangerous drivers when Ali crashed against them.
