WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a postal worker has been seriously injured after he was run over by a box truck at a U.S. Postal Service processing facility in Connecticut.
Police said 52-year-old Glen Ford was walking in the parking lot of the Wallingford facility on Saturday afternoon when he was knocked down and run over by a truck trying to back up to a loading dock.
Ford was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital after the 5 p.m. accident.
No charges have been filed against the truck driver, 46-year-old Joseph Gallo of West Haven, who remained at the scene. The truck is registered to a postal service contractor, FMP Transport LLC of East Haven.
