We can add toll booth collector to the list of dangerous jobs in Costa Rica.

By sheer luck, a toll booth collector at the San Rafael de Alajuela station on the Ruta 27 lived to tell her story when a tractor trailer lost control and slammed into the booth.

This is not the first incident involving a vehicle striking a toll booth in the last several months.

It was 11:30pm Tuesday night when a minivan and the big rig were about to enter the “Quick Pass” lane, the minivan in front, when apparently the driver realized he didn’t have a Quick Pass device…well his action caused the driver of the truck behind him to swerve, losing control and completely demolishing the toll booth.

Fortunately, the collector who was not identified, saw what was about to happen and was able to escape in time.

Other than freyed nerves and some bumps and bruises, everyone was able to walk out alive. This time.
