Three of the four Bay Bridge toll booths damaged in a fatal crash over the weekend reopened Monday morning, according to Caltrans officials.

Caltrans officials said three booths opened at 4:30 a.m. to commuters making their way into San Francisco from the Easy Bay.

Four booths were damaged Saturday around 5 a.m. when a box truck crashed into a line of vehicles at the toll plaza on the Oakland side of the bridge. The truck then slammed into toll booth no. 14, killing a toll worker, identified as 46-year-old Si Si Han.

Han’s booth was completely destroyed in the crash and remains closed. It will need to be rebuilt from the ground up, Caltrans officials said.

The driver of the truck, 32-year-old Daniel Berk of Foster City, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and manslaughter, according to California Highway Patrol officials.

Other motorists involved suffered injuries and were hospitalized, according to CHP officials.

The crash, and closed booths, wreaked havoc on traffic Saturday. Caltrans officials recommend commuters traveling into San Francisco Monday morning find alternate routes or use BART.
