Postal Worker Receives Minor Injuries In Crash

January 10, 2019

A postal worker for Cantonment suffered minor injuries when his delivery vehicle was struck on Scenic Highway Wednesday.


Robert Holderman IV, age 18 of Navarre, was traveling north on Scenic Highway as postal worker Eric Weatherford, 35, was stopped partially of the road delivering mail. An unknown vehicle in front of Holderman swerved to avoid the postal service vehicle.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Holderman saw the postal vehicle at the last minute and did not have time to avoid a collision. His Ford F-150 struck the rear of the postal vehicle.

Weatherford was transported to West Florida Hospital.

Holderman was not injured. He was cited with careless driving by the FHP.

    God forbid we should slow down when it is raining or when the traffic is very heavy.
    Scenic Hwy is a nightmare starting at 4:00 p,m. If one cannot see the mail trucks on the shoulder they need to be ticketed. Quit assuming the speed limit is gospel!

    I had the same thing happen to me several years ago… the vehicle in front of me was so big I couldn’t see there was a stopped postal vehicle in front of it. It was just starting to rain; so when the vehicle in front of me did a really fast swerve to go around the stopped postal vehicle, my car started sliding and spinning around on the slick road. I didn’t hit the rear of the postal vehicle, but did knock the side mirrors off both my car and the postal vehicle. The postal worker was at a house talking to the resident when this happened so the only injuries were to the vehicles. I too was ticketed for careless driving.
