Officials investigating after mail truck hits Idaho woman

  • 0

IDAHO FALLS — Authorities are investigating after a 25-year-old woman was run over by a mail truck outside her eastern Idaho home.

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office said first responders were called to a report of an injury crash involving a pedestrian outside of an Idaho Falls apartment building Monday evening. They found an unresponsive woman underneath a U.S. Postal Service mail truck. Fire crews were able to lift the truck enough to free the woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene. She was identified as Hailey C. Queen.

Bonneville County Sheriff’s Sgt. Bryan Lovell said deputies are still trying to determine how and when Queen died, as well as the circumstances that led to her being in the roadway. Lovell said it’s not yet known if the collision was the cause of her death.

The sheriff’s office said inclement weather was a factor in the collision.

A USPS spokesman told the postal service is fully cooperating with the investigation.

“The U.S. Postal Service extends deep sympathy to the family and friends of the pedestrian who passed away yesterday,” the USPS spokesman said in a statement.
