A collision with another vehicle left a mail truck overturned Dec. 28, but caused no injuries.
The accident occurred at 3:34 p.m. at the intersection of Wrens Highway and Langham Road, according to an accident report.
Princess Beasley, 26, driving a 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue, was behind Mike Abbott, 55, in his mail truck. Both were traveling north on Wrens Highway when they approached the intersection with Langham Road.
Beasley’s brother, Martavion Beasley, 24, and 20-month-old son Kymani McGahee were passengers in her car.
Abbott was turning left onto Langham when Beasley, also attempting a left turn on Langham, traveled into the southbound turn lane.
The front of the Chrysler struck the left side of the mail truck, which rolled onto its side.
Georgia State Patrol Trooper First Class Ben Rollins said the accident was a misunderstanding, and Beasley didn’t see the mail truck.
“I just didn’t see the postal truck,” Beasley said. “I was coming from home, and I knew I was turning here and then going down to Kent’s.”
“I asked if it was drivable because I still wanted to go to Kent’s,” she said.
The vehicles weren’t traveling very fast, and the mail truck flipped because it is top-heavy, Rollins said.
“We don’t know anything except that we’re going to get the mail delivered,” said Karen Milton, a representative of the United States Postal Service.
Beasley received a traffic citation for failure to yield while turning left, Rollins said.
The Thomson Police Department, Thomson Fire Department and the Georgia State Patrol responded to the scene.
