LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Two people are dead after a serious accident involving two trucks on Route 5 in Longmeadow Thursday morning.

My heart is broken for the loss of letter carrier in Enfield, CT, Dan Nacin. All carriers who have lost their life on duty should be honored due to the risks they take on everyday. My deepest condolences to the family and friends. From a fellow USPS worker in CT.

That pour mailman never had a chance especially in those aluminum tin cans, LLV’s. You have no protection in them what so ever. A head on collision would ultimately be fatal. I’m grief stricken to see such a horrific way to leave this world. He was in the line of duty, just doing his job like any day of the week. You just never know. My heart goes out to his fellow workers and his family. It is so sad, so unnecessary, and so unfortunate.
