4 Lanes Closed at Bay Bridge Toll Plaza After Fatal Box Truck Crash

Driver remains hospitalized with serious injuries after slamming into toll booth, killing the attendant

The driver of a truck that crashed into a toll booth on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, killing the attendant, remains hospitalized with serious injuries, and four lanes at the toll plaza remain closed indefinitely for toll booth repairs.

California Highway Patrol Officer Matthew Hamer said 32-year-old Daniel Berk could face charges for driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter. 

Berk is expected to be in the hospital for several days, according to the CHP.

The CHP says the rented box truck hit several vehicles and then the toll both. The attendant inside was killed.

Gov. Jerry Brown said in a statement that the victim was 46-year-old California Department of Transportation employee Si Si Han. Han worked for Caltrans for more than a decade.

The toll booth that was struck will have to be completely rebuilt, according to Caltrans. Three other booths were damaged.

Four lanes at the toll plaza will remain closed for the Monday morning commute as a result of the damage, according to Caltrans. On a typical Monday, all lanes are open.

Caltrans did not have an estimated time of completion for those repairs nor an estimated time for reopening the lanes.
