Memorial dedicated to postal worker killed in car accident in 2017

A memorial was erected at the Marshalltown Post Office on Tuesday in memory of a postal worker who died while on the job.

Amy Sanders, of Grinnell, was struck and killed while driving a postal truck through the intersection of Church and South Center Street in 2017.

According to the initial accident report, a postal vehicle operated by Sanders, 34, was westbound on Church Street approaching Center Street. At the same time, a mini-van, driven by Debra Meister, 60, of Waterloo, was southbound on Center Street approaching Church Street.

Sanders was entering the intersection during a yellow traffic signal when it collided with Meister’s mini-van, which entered the intersection under a red light, according to the report.

Sanders’ postal vehicle flipped over on its side following impact and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Meister was treated for minor injuries.
