(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — A United States Postal Service (USPS) mail truck recently crashed in Erie County.

At about 11:25 a.m. on July 3, a Pennsylvania State Police Trooper found a USPS mail truck (a 1994 Grumman Allied LLV-A) in a ditch on the side of Griffey Road in Conneaut Township.

According to a PSP report, the driver lost control of the vehicle when it hit loose gravel. The truck went into the ditch, traveled some 24 feet and struck a tree. The truck then traveled another 63 feet after hitting the tree before finally stopping.

During the accident, the passenger-side sliding door was ripped off, and the windshield and roof were damaged. The vehicle had to be towed.
