GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A United States Postal Service worker delivering mail was injured in a wreck Wednesday after her truck was rear-ended, according to a USPS spokesperson.

Harry Spratlin, South Carolina's USPS spokesman, said the worker was delivering mail to a box on the side of the road when her vehicle was rear-ended by a tractor trailer.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said the wreck happened about 11:30 a.m. along Mauldin Road at Fairforest Way.

Troopers said the semi-truck pushed the mail truck into a telephone pole. Troopers ticketed the trailer's driver, 50-year-old Marco Lopez of Simpsonville, with driving too fast for conditions.

Spratlin said the injured worker was taken to the hospital by EMS.

USPS supervisors secured the mail and said it would be delivered on time while maintenance workers towed the truck, according to Spratlin.
