NEAR GIBBS, Mo. — A northeast Missouri mail carrier was flown to a hospital late Friday morning after crashing her pickup truck due to icy road conditions.
The crash happened around 11:40 a.m. on Salt River Lane east of Gibbs, Missouri.
First responders arrived on the scene, but the gravel road was too slick for some of them to get the fire truck down to where the truck slid off.
The mail carrier, Stacy Hunziker, 57, of Kirksville, was flown to University Hospital in Columbia for treatment of serious injuries.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Hunziker’s truck slid off the left side of the roadway, struck a tree and overturned.
As of mid-afternoon on Friday, Hunziker was listed in “fair” condition.
Troopers said she was not wearing a seat belt.
