Postal worker delivers driver who hit woman to police


STILL UNDER INVESTIGATION. JEFF: A SIMPLE WALK TO THE MAILBOX SENDS A WOMAN TO THE HOSPITAL. A DRIVER SLAMS INTO HER AND THEN TAKES OFF. A POSTAL CARRIER STEPS INTO ACTION. JENNIFER: ALL OF THIS HAPPENING ALONG FISHER ROAD IN SALEM THIS MORNING. AND TONIGHT, OUR COLE MILLER SPOKE WITH THE WOMAN’S HUSBAND AND THAT MAIL CARRIER. COLE: JENNIFER, JEFF. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE’S HOPING FOR A QUICK RECOVERY, AS FOR THE MAIL CARRIER, SHE ACTUALLY PULLED HER TRUCK IN FRONT OF THAT CAR, KEEPING THAT DRIVER AT THE SCENE UNTIL POLICE SHOWED UP. WHETHER SHE SAW THE CAR COMING OR NOT, I DO NOT KNOW. SHE WAS SPRAWLED OUT ON THE DRIVEWAY. COLE: JAMES HILL REMEMBERS THE MOMENT HE SAW HIS WIFE AFTER SHE WAS HIT WHILE OUT GETTING THE MAIL THIS MORNING. MAILBOX AND EVERYTHING WAS RIPPED APART. COLE: A WITNESS CALLING 911 RIGHT AWAY, SALEM POLICE SHUTTING DOWN FISHER ROAD. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I SEE , THIS CAR THAT WAS DRIVING ACROSS THE LINE, AND SMACKED HER, HIT HER, FULL ON INTO HER MAILBOX AND SHE SMACKED HER HEAD ON THE GROUND. SHE WAS UNCONSCIOUS AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS IT RIGHT THERE. COLE: TONIGHT, SHE REMAINS IN THE HOSPITAL. HILL, AND POLICE, NOW CREDITING THAT WOMAN THERE, THE MAIL CARRIER, FOR WHAT SHE DID AFTER THE IMPACT. SHE SAW WHAT HAPPENED AND SHE BLOCKED THE STREET. COLE: SHE IS KIM SMITH. THE ADRENALINE TOOK OVER, I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY I DID. I JUST DID IT. COLE: SHE SAYS THE LADY BEHIND THE WHEEL EVEN TRIED WALKING AWAY. SO I JUST PARKED IN FRONT OF HER TO MAKE SURE SHE DIDN’T GO ANYWHERE. COLE: POLICE LATER ARRESTING THAT WOMAN FOR DUII. AS FOR SMITH, SHE SAYS SHE JUST DID WHAT SHE HOPES ANYONE ELSE WOULD’VE DONE. YOU DO WHAT’S RIGHT. I DON’T THINK IT’S ABOUT HEROICS. IT IS NOT ABOUT GETTING RECOGNITION. IT IS REALLY ABOUT DOING THE RIGHT THING FOR YOUR CUSTOMER, ALL PEOPLE IN GENERAL. COLE: TONIGHT, POLICE HAVE NOT YET RELEASED THE NAME OF THE DRIVER. AS FOR HILL, THE WOMAN’S HUSBAND HE SAYS THIS IS THE SECOND TIME , IN THE LAST WEEK A DRUNK DRIVER HAS CRASHED ON HIS ROAD.
