News4 has learned the tractor-trailer that caught fire on Interstate 24 on Monday morning was carrying peoples’ mail.
We first told you about this as breaking news on News4 Today. It’s pretty scary when you think about it; bills, tax returns, medical records. You could be expecting something important on the truck that caught fire.
News4 is Working 4 You with answers on what happens next if you’re someone who had mail on that truck.
On that truck was mail heading to Clarksville.
A spokeswoman for the United States Postal Service tells News4 that customers who had mail on that truck will receive a letter letting them know. That letter will have instructions on how to contact your local postmaster.
If you don’t receive a letter in the mail soon, then you are not someone who was affected by this.
It was around 4:45 a.m. when the tractor-trailer hydroplaned slamming into a bridge on I-24 west near Old Hickory Blvd. Luckily, the driver was not seriously hurt and is expected to be okay.
