USPS Truck Bursts Into Flames After Getting Stuck On An Icy Hill
January 28th, 2019
A story of fire and ice, literally. You would think the USPS would equip their drivers with snow tires or chains. But a USPS truck ended itself while attempting to deliver mail just outside of Kansas City. The driver is seen on camera spinning tires for several minutes attempting to drive up an icy hill. There's no exact answer on what caused the fire but it may be due to the tire explosion.
Brian Riley was the neighbor to catch the whole scenario and said, “There was a point where, for almost 10 minutes straight, he did not let up on the gas". “He was pushing it beyond insanity, and you could just tell the way he was going that he was getting more and more mad the whole time.”
Luckily, the driver was evacuated and the driverless flaming truck rolled back down the hill before coming to rest in a nearby yard. You can hear burning packages exploding inside the truck as firefighters arrive on the scene. If you sent something to a friend in that area, you might want to see if they got it.
