USPS Driver Killed in Bradenton Accident

A driver for the United States Postal Service died from injuries sustained in an accident in Bradenton.

According to the Bradenton Police Department, the accident in question occurred at approximately noon on Monday, September 20 in the 3300 block of Seventh Avenue West. Officers had received reports of an accident between a Mercedes SUV and a post office delivery vehicle.

The driver of the Mercedes was a 79-year-old Bradenton man who failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection. When he proceeded through, he hit the USPS truck, causing it to overturn on its side. The 41-year-old mail carrier, also of Bradenton, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Officials did not believe drugs or alcohol to be a factor in the accident, but continued the investigation.

Finding evidence of negligence

For any accident victim (or the family of deceased victims) to be successful in recovering compensation for their injuries and damages, they must be able to prove negligence on the part of the defendant.

A circumstance in which there is evidence of the defendant violating rules of the road, such as a citation or witness testimony, is sufficient for proving negligence. A driver running a stop sign, for example, would be an example of negligence that could result in that driver’s liability in the case.
