Memorial ride raises funds for slain postal worker’s daughter

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) — Hundreds showed up to support the family of an Indianapolis postal worker who was shot and killed in April.

The National Association of Letter Carriers is establishing a trust fund for the teenage daughter of Angela Summers. To help kick-start that fund, they held a memorial drive on Sunday afternoon. Summers’ co-workers say she was was a short-term employee, which means she did not qualify for life insurance.

The cars passed through much of Speedway and included part of Angela’s mail route. Each motorcycle and car donated $20 to participate.

Summers was shot April 27, after a dispute with a homeowner in the 400 block of Denny Street.

Federal charges were later filed against Tony Cushingberry-Mays, 21, in the fatal shooting. He is charged with second-degree murder; assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers or employees; and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Summers had been a letter carrier in Indianapolis for almost two years.

The union said the ride was just one way to help her daughter moving forward.
