'I've Never Seen This.' Toll Booth Attendant Killed as Truck Crashes Through Barrier

California Highway Patrol Officer Vu Williams tells the San Francisco Chronicle a box truck struck several vehicles early Saturday and then hit a toll both.

Toll Booth 14 was completely destroyed in the crash and must be rebuilt from the ground up and Caltrans is working to fix other booths damaged in the crash, Caltrans spokesman Robert Haus said.

BART officials said they were already at capacity and can not add extra trains to ease the pressures on the morning rush hour.

The crash killed toll booth worker, Si Si Han, a 46-year-old wife and mother, according to a statement from Gov. A public records search indicated she is from San Lorenzo, but officials have not said publicly where she was residing.

A passenger in the box truck was ejected, suffering injuries, andwas taken to Highland Hospital, as was the driver. Han worked for Caltrans for more than a decade.

CHP said 32-year-old Daniel Berk of Foster City was arrested for driving under the influence and vehicular manslaughter.

The toll plaza's 10 right lanes - six cash/FasTrak lanes, two FasTrak lanes and two bus lanes - eventually were closed and remained that way until late Saturday night.

Brown says flags at the Capitol will be flown at half-staff in Han's honor.
