A postal carrier was thrown out of her truck after her vehicle was rammed by a pick-up truck driven by a 13-year-old driver during a late afternoon collision in Angeleno Heights.
The postal truck ended up on top of the female postal carrier but she was in stable condition following the collision at the intersection of Douglas Street and Calumet Avenue, said Sgt. Dave Rich with the LAPD’s Central Traffic Bureau. The underage driver was being detained.
The collision took place at about 4:20 p.m. when the pick-up truck, headed westbound on Calumet, broadsided the postal carrier’s vehicle as it was traveling southbound on Douglas Street, Rich said.
The intersection was closed to traffic at about 6 p.m. as the investigation continued.
*Update: KTLA reports the postal carrier suffered head injuries and a possible fractured or dislocated hip.
