MORRIS TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – A woman is facing charges for allegedly hitting a mail carrier in Greene County with her car last year, killing him.
Chad Varner, 49, was hit and killed on Andrews Road in Morris Township last October after he left his vehicle to deliver a package.
“This accident took a heavy toll. Mr. Varner wasn’t just our mailman, Mr. Varner was our friend and Mr. Varner was valued and he will be missed. His absence changed the chemistry of our community,” said Greene County Regional Police Chief William DeForte.
Police said Tina Phillips was driving over 70 mph when her car careened off the road and through a row of hedges before hitting Varner. A witness who saw the crash ran to a store to call 911 since there was no reception at the scene then came back to render aid.
