(KRON) — Three westbound lanes on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge were reopened early Tuesday morning after a big rig truck struck a toll booth and caught fire Monday night, according to California Highway Patrol. Officials reported that one person died following the crash.
The person who died has been identified as Jasbir Khaira, a 43-year-old Antioch man.
The big rig hit the booth on the westbound lanes just before 10 p.m., CHP said. Both the truck and the toll booth caught fire, according to the traffic log from police. Crews at the scene removed the engine of the big rig.
There was only one occupant of the big rig, CHP said.
As of about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, lanes number 5, 6 and 7 to the far right of the toll plaza remain closed. Crews remain on the scene assessing damage to the toll plaza, which was burned as a result of the spill that caused the fire.
