Postal truck goes topsy-turvy on Wolf Island Road
Rochester — 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.
