A postal worker is dead after a Ford Expedition pushed his mail truck into a ditch in a hit-and-run crash on Julia Street Saturday evening.

The mail carrier was taking a left turn onto Bauman Road when the driver of the 2011 Ford SUV clipped the back of the postal truck. The crash pushed the carrier out of the truck as it rolled into the ditch, and he was crushed, Assistant Houston Police Chief Patricia Cantu said in a video Saturday.

Several people at the scene worked to pull the truck off of the mail carrier.

“I’m proud of the community that rushed to his aid, pulled the truck off of the driver, and immediately started rendering aid,” Cantu said in a video posted to X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter.

The worker died on the way to the hospital, Cantu said. Houston Police did not yet know the postal worker’s name or age.
