Tahir Fakhar was an independent truck driver from Hayward. His big-rig hit the upper-deck railing of the s-curve and plummeted 200 feet.
His brother told the San Francisco Chronicle that the s-curve is too short and Caltrans needs to shut down the bridge to change it.
Caltrans says Fakhar was driving at least ten miles over the speed limit and his cargo of pears may have shifted.
Caltrans and the CHP say the s-curve is safe when people don't speed.
Overnight three lanes on the upper deck were closed so crews could install new signs urging drivers to slow to 35 miles an hour through the s-curve.
