    Just one day after Christmas, a mail truck, stuffed with letters overturned in Rockville, Maryland on Interstate 270. The truck blocked two lanes of traffic, causing a pileup.

    The postal service’s pledge to work and deliver mail in rain, sleet, snow and any other nasty condition is certainly true. However some letter deliveries in one certain area were negatively impacted, as was traffic and it had nothing to do with weather.

    Just one day after Christmas, a mail truck, stuffed with letters overturned in Rockville, Maryland on Interstate 270. The truck blocked two lanes of traffic, causing a pileup.

    In additional to that issue, hundreds of pieces of mail spilled onto the roadway. The accident occurred a little after 7 in the morning.

    Luckily nobody was injured. However it remains unknown what caused the box truck to flip, as the pavement appeared to be clear of any slippery conditions like snow or ice.

    Montgomery County police were forced to block entrances to the lanes while the cleanup efforts were underway. It seemed as though the week of Christmas wasn’t easy for shipping companies overall.

    Both UPS and FEDEX encountered problems prior to the holiday causing a delay for packages, many of which were said to be gifts form Santa. Those delivery postponements were blamed on horrible weather and overloaded computer systems.
