Video: 6-year-old Columbus boy hit by U.S. Postal truck in Oakland Park
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WRBL) – Last month, a six-year-old Columbus boy was struck by a mail truck and suffered injuries that required hospitalization.
His mother has now hired an attorney and is looking for answers. And she has a home-security camera video of the incident.
It appeared to be a normal mail delivery on Jan. 13, 2022. That was before the driver came running back to the home on Vicky Avenue in Oakland Park.
On the video, you see the mail truck stop and the driver get out. He then runs back to the home to tell the mother that he hit the boy, who was on a bike.
The boy suffered rib injuries and scrapes to the head. He was taken to Piedmont Columbus Regional by his mother, Jessica Thetford. The mother putting her son into her vehicle while the driver is calling 911 is also clearly visible in the video.
Worst nightmare for postal carriers.
