Rural Mail Carrier Flips Vehicle While Delivering Mail On Dirt Road

June 30, 2020

A rural mail carrier flipped her vehicle while delivering mail on a dirt road midday Tuesday in the Walnut Hill area.

She lost control of her Jeep Grand Cherokee while southbound on South Pineville Road just over a mile south of Arthur Brown Road. The vehicle flipped, coming to rest upside down on the roadway. She was not injured.

Arrangements were made for the remainder of the mail in the vehicle to be delivered.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating. The Walnut Hill Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded. photos, click toe enlarge.

    Pineville road and many side roads should have been paved years ago. Rightaway at Pineville Cemetery was given close to 20 years ago. There was a special tax that was supposed to pay for this, this tax money was not supposed to be touched until all unpaved roads were paved. Would really like to know if this funding has been used for other things.

    Phew! Glad shes ok. That road is bad on a dry day. Add rain or even heavy dew and it’s like ice!

    Red clay when wet can be a slippery as ice.

    I grew up out there on Pineville. Parts of Pineville and OC Phillips get oddly packed. Its almost like they are slick. Like you are sliding on glass. Cant count how many times i can remember friends and family sliding on that road. I did it once. Ended up sliding all the way around. Cant explain it!

    Paving a road wouldn’t have helped from the looks of this roll over. Speed more likely the culprit. Just think of what it will be like if it were paved, and no patrolling through there? I do hope she is okay. My prayers go out to her.

    I live on this road and am not suprised. she drives like a bat out of hadies everyday. She is rude. I hope she is ok though. I wouldn’t be suprised if it wasn’t the first time. She needs to slow down on this road there are children and she could cause another person to wreck going to fast around all the corners with the dirt not always being packed.

    Praying she’s ok!! Another reason the county should pave the roads!

    Praying she’s ok! A good reason why the county needs to pave them!

    Hope she’s alright.
