3 Hurt When Postal Service Truck Crashes With Vehicle On Highway 1 Near Half Moon Bay

HALF MOON BAY (CBS SF) -- Three people were hospitalized after a U.S. Postal Service truck collided with another vehicle on state Highway 1 near Half Moon Bay late Wednesday morning, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The crash was reported shortly before 11:40 a.m. on Highway 1 near Medio Avenue just north of Half Moon Bay, according to the CHP.

A USPS truck was traveling south on the highway and somehow collided with a dark gray Subaru traveling north, CHP Officer Amelia Jack said.

The male driver in the postal truck and a male and female in the Subaru were all taken by medical helicopter to Stanford Hospital to be treated for major injuries, including a head wound to the postal worker, Jack said.

The postal truck came to rest blocking the highway in both directions, Jack said.

The vehicles were eventually cleared from the roadway and all lanes were reopened at about 1:10 p.m., according to the CHP.
