On Friday, April 3, 2015, a child was killed in a truck collision on Delta Street in Porterville, that involved a postal truck. The fatal vehicle accident took place in Tulare County, at 1:30 PM. The toddler has been identified as T.J. Trevino.
An United States mail truck was out making deliveries in the Delta and Aurora Avenue area. The Post Office vehicle stopped at the residence of 481 N. Delta Street, and as it pulled away the truck hit the 18-month-old boy.
It is reported that witnesses saw T.J. run suddenly out into the roadway right before the postal truck pulled out.
T.J. Trevino sustained major injuries and was said to not be breathing after the accident. He was rushed by ambulance to Sierra View Medical Center, in Porterville, where he later died from his injuries.
The Porterville Police continue to investigate the incident.
