Oregon firefighters and paramedics help get mail carrier Judith Wehner out of the overturned mail truck Monday.

OREGON – Residents of Rockvale Township just outside of Oregon got their mail a few hours late Monday after a mail truck crashed on its rounds.

Judith L. Wehner, 56, Byron, was not injured when the U.S. Postal Service vehicle she was driving rolled over just south of her stop at 1149 N. Daysville Road, the Ogle County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Wehner was northbound on Daysville just after 12:30 p.m. when the vehicle left the road on a curve, went into the east ditch, rolled over and came to rest against a tree. She climbed out with the help of the Oregon Ambulance crew.

The mail was retrieved and delivered by another carrier later that day, Oregon Postmaster Paula Tegeler said.

No information on whether charges were filed was available late Tuesday.
