Crashed delivery truck causes service delay at Canada Post

The truck ran off the road just past Ridley Island Road early on Oct. 1

A truck carrying Canada Post mail ran off the road on its way into Prince Rupert early Oct. 1.

The truck is currently in a side ditch at the top of Miller Bay Hill on Highway 16 just past Ridley Island Road.

An employee with Canada Post said the truck is a contractor that transports mail from Prince George to Prince Rupert.

In an emailed statement, media relations at Canada Post said all of the mail was recovered, is secured and will be processed as soon as possible in Prince Rupert.

“There may be some delays in mail that was expected to be delivered today, but it will be a priority on Tuesday,” the statement said.
