A Tollesboro woman working to deliver the mail escaped serious injury Wednesday morning when her vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer hauling propane gas.
Deputy Gary Sparks said the accident happened on the AA Highway at the intersection of Hamrick Hollow Road at Tollesboro when a 2000 Geo Tracker, operated by Rachel Doll, 28, of Tollesboro, was traveling west on the highway.
Sparks said Doll, who was delivering mail, was attempting a left turn onto Hamrick Hollow Road when a westbound Kenworth tractor pulling a propane tanker collided with the Tracker.
**Doll is a Rural Carrier Associate (serving Auxiliary Rural Routes) at the U.S. Postal Service in Tollesboro, Kentucky.
