‘She was family’: Caltrans mourns loss of toll taker killed in crash

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Monday morning Caltrans employees are mourning the loss of a co-worker killed while working in her toll booth on Saturday.

It is with heavy hearts that crews begin repairing the Bay Bridge toll plaza, where a box truck plowed into Si Si Han’s booth.

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

He, like Han’s other co-workers, are stunned by the 46-year-old’s death.

“You’re never prepared for it,” Haus said.

While dealing with this tragic loss, Caltrans still has a massive job to do.

Han’s booth, booth 14, was basically destroyed in the collision.

Haus says the damage is too extensive to fix in house.

Caltrans is looking to hire an emergency contractor to help construct a new booth.

Haus says the damage is too extensive to estimate how long repairs will take.

In the meantime, drivers should plan ahead for delays.
