Postal truck goes topsy-turvy on Wolf Island Road

Feb 21, 2017

Neither rain nor snow nor sleet nor hail stop the United States Postal Service, but hitting a rock and a fire hydrant definitely slows down mail delivery.

On Tuesday afternoon, a postal truck ended up on its side after the driver hit a low rock wall, went over another rock and then ran into a fire hydrant.

The postal worker told Rochester Police Officer Robert Nordahl that he looked down and “all of a sudden he noticed he hit the wall. He hit the gas instead of the brake.”

The truck ended up on its side.

A neighbor on the scene said he heard a bang, but figured it was a large truck hitting a bump until the driver knocked on his door.

The man was treated by a paramedic but apparently was uninjured and did not want to be taken to the hospital.
