A postal worker is recovering after his truck was hit Saturday afternoon.
Nathan Acker, 39, of Delaware, was stopped on Wolford Maskill Road in his postal truck delivering mail at 12:59 p.m. Jan. 5. Then, a 2006 Ford F-350, driven by Michael Plotner, 21, of Raymond, attempted to pass Acker’s mail truck, but instead rear-ended the vehicle.
“It spun the mail truck into a driveway and the vehicle ended up on the right side of the roadway,” said Lieutenant Molly Harris, of the Ohio State Highway Patrol Marysville post.
Harris said the F-350 came to rest in a resident’s yard. She said the mail truck was hit into a driveway near 19962 Wolford Maskill Road. She said officials are not sure whether the mail truck had any lights on to indicate it was stopped.
Plotner was cited for assured clear distance, and Acker was transported to Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.
The Journal-Tribune called the Marysville Highway Patrol office for crash reports Monday and Tuesday, but was told there weren’t any injury crash or arrest reports to give.
Harris said this was because of the Highway Patrol’s system for processing crash reports. She said a crash report is automatically taken out of the pending system after witness statements have been checked and all errors are corrected. They are then taking to the central system’s server.
“It disappeared off of our pending list,” Harris said.
When the Journal-Tribune receives crash reports, they are pulled from the pending system or a physical paper box. She said the entry left the pending system Sunday evening after she checked on it that day.
