The truck had a U.S. Postal Service logo. It was observed stopped in the middle of the intersection. Articles of clothing were also observed in the roadway.

The pedestrian was taken to a hospital and initially described as being in critical condition. Police said later they were awaiting an update on the individual’s condition.
