SACRAMENTO - At its 26th Annual Workers Memorial at the State Capitol, Caltrans honored the 187 employees who have lost their lives on the job since 1921. This solemn event honors the legacies of those who gave their lives to build, maintain and keep California’s transportation system safe, and unfortunately adds yet another Caltrans employee to those killed while on the job.

After two years without a Caltrans fatality, Oscar Vargas, 54, of Chula Vista, died from injuries received after losing control of his work truck while leaving a nighttime project along Interstate 8 in Imperial County on July 14, 2015. Vargas was a Structures Construction Transportation Civil Engineer and 29-year Caltrans veteran.
