Porterville vehicle collision ends in fatality for 18-month-old boy, on Friday, April 3, 2015. The Tulare County accident involved a United States Post Office delivery truck, at around 1:30 in the afternoon.
The U.S. postal vehicle was out delivering mail in the area of Delta Street and Aurora Avenue. It had stopped in front of a home on Delta. When it pulled away from the residence the truck struck a toddler boy, who has been identified as T.J. Trevino.
Neighbors claim that the child has been playing in the front yard of 481 N. Delta Street, when suddenly he darted out into the street.
After being hit, the postal worker was reported to have stopped and got out of his vehicle to help with the boy.
