SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The family of the Bay Bridge toll booth attendant who was killed on the job Saturday morning by a suspected drunk driver says she wasn’t working her normal shift that day.

46-year-old Si Si Han came in early for her shift after one of her coworkers called out sick.

Han came into work at 5 a.m. At 5:11 a.m., a box truck slammed into her toll both, killing her. She was originally scheduled to work at 5:30 a.m.

Han was a wife and mother of a 10-year-old daughter who had worked for Caltrans for over a decade.

Her family set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for the funeral expenses.

On the GoFundMe, her family describes her as “a nurturing mother, loving wife, and a caring individual to all.”

“Si Si was such a sweet and generous woman,” her husband, Ryan Saw wrote. “She constantly made sacrifices to support her family, especially her young daughter. Si Si specifically worked early morning shift in order to spend time with her family the remainder of the day. She worked hard to ensure that her daughter would have the resources to explore her passions and to pursue a higher education in the future.”

Han was killed after 32-year-old Daniel Berk crashed into her toll booth. 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 and charged with Driving Under the Influence and Manslaughter.
