Raleigh, N.C. — A postal worker is in critical condition after his mail truck was hit by another vehicle Monday evening.
William Franks, 77, of Holly Springs, was driving his mail truck on Pagan Road at about 7:45 p.m. when he ran a stop sign at Rock Service Station Road and was hit by a Ford F150 driven by James Ward, 50, authorities said.
Franks was transported to WakeMed. Ward and his son, who was in the pickup truck with him, were not hurt.
Mail was scattered across the road, said authorities, who plan to charge Franks with a stop sign violation.
