SF postal worker who died on route ID’d

A San Francisco postal worker who died after apparently suffering a medical problem and falling from his truck Monday was identified Tuesday by the U.S. Postal Service as 50-year-old Jian Cao.

Cao was on his route Monday when, at about 4:45 p.m., he collapsed and fell from his truck near the intersection of 21st Avenue and Clement Street, police said.

Cao had worked for the Postal Service in San Francisco for about eight years and begun his route in the Richmond district about three months ago, postal service spokesman James Wigdel said.

Cao’s truck traveled about half a block after Cao fell out, police said. A nearby business owner said the truck rolled down the wrong side of the street and crashed into a minivan.
