Edmonson Voice Report:
The U.S. Postal Service is urging local residents to use extra caution on the roadways following an accident that recently occurred involving a mail carrier.
Brownsville Postmaster Sheri Puckett said the accident was the fourth one involving mail carriers along the same local road in the last five years.
"As United States Postal Service employees, it is our honor to serve this community," she said. "We take great pride in providing excellent customer service and delivering essential items throughout Brownsville. With the holiday season approaching, our carriers will have longer days delivering many packages and mail pieces."
"Help keep us safe so we can return home to our families at the end of our workday. Our carriers survived their injuries, but their lives will be forever changed."
Puckett said postal vehicles are marked with signage, flags, and lights.
"Be aware our carriers will make frequent stops along their routes. Brownsville postal carriers want to deliver the holidays for our customers. And I would like to deliver the gift of safety to our employees."
The other driver involved in the recent crash was also seriously injured, according to local officials.
