CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Chesterfield mail carrier was injured in an accident on the job but the compensation he received was not nearly enough to cover his expenses. It wasn’t until 8News inquired on his behalf that the U.S. Department of Labor reopened the case.

Garland Hollins told 8News that, at first, he was just thankful to be alive. On Oct. 20, 2022, he was out on delivery, sitting in his parked mail truck on Elkhardt Road, when an oncoming vehicle crashed into him. The collision caused the other vehicle to flip over and Hollins to be thrown from his mail truck. As his mail truck continued to roll from the impact, it almost ran him over.

The entire frightening scene was captured by a neighbor’s home security camera.
