A 60-year-old West New York woman suffered a collapsed lung after being pinned under a USPS truck in North Bergen Tuesday night, Jan. 30, sources tell Daily Voice.

The off-duty USPS driver was turning left from 45th Street onto the Bergen Turnpike when he struck the woman crossing from west to east.

Once the driver felt the impact, he didn’t know if he should keep driving or stop his truck. He ultimately decided to stop driving, pinning the woman underneath the tire, Daily Voice’s source with direct knowledge of the incident said.

Bystanders ran over and began trying to lift the mail truck off of the victim, who remained pinned for nearly 10 minutes until firefighters dislodged her, Daily Voice has learned.

Paramedics transported the woman in an ambulance to the hospital, where she was listed as being in stable condition as of Wednesday morning, Jan. 31, North Bergen police tell Daily Voice.
