Mail carrier south of Jamestown dies in crash hours before retirement
On April 21, during one of the season’s last winter storms, Ken Anderson was out working his final day of carrying mail before retiring. During his route, he hit slush on the road, rolled his jeep into the ditch and was ejected. He was alive long enough to call 911, but all the dispatch heard was him saying, “help me.”
Coworkers left flowers and a flag at the scene to remember him.
“He enjoyed his job, that’s for sure,” Judy Anderson said.
A dedicated worker, the post office congratulated him with a cake on his last day.
“I figure that he had four hours left in his shift, (before retiring),” Judy Anderson said.
