Bicyclist hit, critically injured in collision with postal truck

A woman was critically injured Saturday evening in a collision with a postal truck while she was riding a bicycle on Lewis Avenue.

Witness accounts indicated the cyclist was either riding diagonally across the road southbound or attempting to cross it at the 6700 block of South Lewis Avenue, Tulsa Police Officer Michael Robertson said.

A USPS postal truck struck the cyclist about 6 p.m. near an unoccupied strip mall. Tulsa police shut down the southbound lanes in that area, directing traffic around the collision and through the mall’s parking lot.

Why was mail carrier out after dark? Another example of poor management and absolutely no regard for carrier safety!!

Because we have no business delivering after dark. It can be avoided by reporting earlier and curtailing bulk.
