A memorial was erected at the Marshalltown Post Office on Tuesday in memory of a postal worker who died while on the job.
Amy Sanders, of Grinnell, was struck and killed while driving a postal truck through the intersection of Church and South Center Street in 2017.
According to the initial accident report, a postal vehicle operated by Sanders, 34, was westbound on Church Street approaching Center Street. At the same time, a mini-van, driven by Debra Meister, 60, of Waterloo, was southbound on Center Street approaching Church Street.
Sanders was entering the intersection during a yellow traffic signal when it collided with Meister’s mini-van, which entered the intersection under a red light, according to the report.
Sanders’ postal vehicle flipped over on its side following impact and she was pronounced dead at the scene. Meister was treated for minor injuries.
