VIDEO: Toll booth worker killed in Bay Bridge crash remembered as loving wife, mother

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Friends and family are still coping with the death of a toll worker who was killed early Saturday morning after a driver rammed into her booth.

KRON4’s Spencer Blake says the victim, 46-year-old Si Si Han, was married and the mother of a 10-year-old daughter. Han had worked for Caltrans for over a decade.

Several neighbors in Han’s San Lorenzo neighborhood were devastated after learning of her tragic death. Residents told Spencer that Han was a devoted mother who walked her daughter to school and picked her up in the afternoon.

Han was killed after 32-year-old Daniel Berk crashed into her toll booth around 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Berk sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash and was transported to a hospital.

Later that afternoon California Highway Patrol said Berk was arrested in charged with Driving Under the Influence and Manslaughter.

Caltrans employees are mourning also the loss of Han.

It is with heavy hearts that crews began repairing the Bay Bridge toll plaza, where a box truck plowed into her booth.

“She was family,” Caltrans worker Bob Haus said. “We’re all family here at Caltrans.”
