Brooklyn, NY (May 5, 2019) – Police say that, on Friday evening, a father of three was killed in a fatal truck accident involving a USPS truck.
The man has since been identified as 52-year-old Charles McClean, who was leaving a local corner store on Friday when the USPS truck started to accelerate. The truck ran into McClean and did not stop, dragging his body.
Police have since viewed surveillance videos, where they discovered that McClean had been using a crosswalk to walk across MacDougal Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant when the accident occurred.
When police originally responded to the accident, they found McClean with severe trauma to his body and were unable to revive him through CPR. He was taken to the Interfaith Hospital where he was tragically pronounced deceased.
The driver of the postal truck stayed on the scene and is cooperating with police at this time.
