California police officer falls victim to drunk driving crash

A Christmas Eve shift turned deadly for one officer on the state roads recently. The California Highway Patrol officer was parked by the side of the road while monitoring traffic using a radar gun. The person who crashed into the officer's vehicle is in critical condition but will face drunk driving charges once he is released into police custody. Unfortunately, this tragic event did not need to occur, and the accused man is facing serious felony charges.
