Posted: Updated:

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 into Officer Andrew Camilleri's patrol SUV.
Camilleri's partner, Jonathan Velasquez, who was in 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 officers were parked on the interstate's shoulder watching for dangerous drivers when Ali crashed into them.
