Mail carrier dies in fall from truck

A mail carrier died Monday after apparently suffering a medical problem and falling from his truck in San Francisco's Richmond District,
police said.

Police Lt. Lyn Tomioka said officers were called to the area of 21st Avenue and Clement Street at about 4:45 p.m. in response to multiple
reports of an unconscious mail carrier.

Tomioka said that after the man fell out of the truck, the driverless vehicle traveled about half a block.

Albert Levy, owner of Aladdin Rugs on the corner of Clement and 21st, said the truck rolled down the wrong side of the street and crashed
into a minivan.

Levy said he did not know the mail carrier. “He was not our regular mailman,” he said.
