Mail Truck Crashes Coming to Wyoming
Laramie, Wy – A mail truck on its way to Wyoming was involved in a fatal crash this morning. It happened on Interstate 25 near Fort Collins and involved two semi-trucks and, perhaps, a Wyoming vehicle.
The Colorado State Patrol says the driver of a truck hauling U-S
Mail rolled the trailer onto its side and a second semi then slammed into the back, scattering mail across the interstate.
The 62-year-old driver of the second semi died at the scene.
The Cheyenne Postmaster says all of the mail was recovered, but said about 10 percent was damaged and will be delayed while postal workers identify addresses for delivery. He said most of the mail was headed to Cheyenne and Laramie while the rest was going elsewhere in Wyoming.
Meanwhile, troopers are searching for a car with Wyoming plates
that may have played a role in the crash.
