Postal Workers Dealing With Snow Piles, Injuries

The US Postal Service is reminding home and business owners to do their best to clean out paths for their letter carriers during weather like we're seeing Tuesday, and throughout the winter.

Post Office officials have reported that over 40 postal workers have been injured already this season, due to ice and snow pileup. Three have been struck by vehicles because they were forced to walk in the roads while delivering mail. Injuries have included bruised backs, concussions and broken wrists.

The Postal Service has been able to deliver to the vast majority of homes, but are asking that people shovel a path, or take precautions to make sure postal workers have a safe way to your mailbox.

ABC6 Reporter John Guice will have more on the dangers mail carrier face, today on ABC6 First @ Four.
