Officer Gerald Silvestri was killed in an accident while responding to assist other officers with a high risk vehicle stop. During the response, Officer Silvestri lost control of the patrol car and struck a tree. He was transported to a local hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.

The high risk vehicle stop was initiated as the result of a false report stemming from a domestic dispute. The female caller claimed that the vehicle had been stolen at gunpoint. The subject was arrested and charged with making a false report.

Officer Silvestri had been in law enforcement for 6 years, and had been employed with the San Bernardino Police Department for 3 years. He is survived by his wife, 2-year-old son, and 5-year-old daughter.
