Mail truck careens down embankment
Highway route driver Josh Darlock, who is contracted to transport mail to Big Timber and other small towns from Billings, drove the vehicle down the embankment of the Boulder River Bridge, damaging the guard rail the morning of April 6.
Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Chan Barry reported that Darlock said the vehicle had a mechanical issue which caused the front end of the truck to jerk to the right.
Barry said Darlock sustained minor injuries and transported himself to the hospital.
The call was reported at 7:08 a.m. and a Sweet Grass County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the scene roughly 10 minutes later.
Postmaster Jacki Franklin and her team of post office employees unloaded the truck and transported the mail to the post office, which was less than a mile away.
