If I were the family of this driver, I would have this company investigated.They have had more deaths and creashes than all other mail carriers COMBINED.HOW DO YOU leave the shop at fulton industrial blvd, drive 2 miles down the road and go to sleep and WRECK??I am wondering if MECHANICAL FAILURE was a problem?Darian Byrd had this same type ACCIDENT in knoxville with this company also taking her life. This company hires owner operators and runs the PURE HELL out of them, having to log trips from atlanta to memphis tennessee from the alabama state line in order for themt o make a round trip and be legal.WHEN IS THIS SENSELESS KILLING GOING TO STOP???? INVESTIGATE THE SAFETY RECORD AND MAKE YOUR OWN DECISION.

I worked for this company for many years and they love and treat their drivers like family. I am sorry for the loss of a persons life but accident is just that.

Its ashamed this driver lost his life over this.I will always believe therwe was something wrong with the truck he was driving.Was there maintenance done on it the day before?Was there a problem with the steering? He had JUST came into work, so he didn't go to sleep.I will be glad to see this company SHUT DOWN.They run a DANGEROUS operation, allowing drivers to travel great distances and 16 and 19 hours a day on the road.If you want a day off to rest, you have to give a 2 week notice so they can cover your route while you are out.Daily these trucks roll from atlanta to memphis tennessee and back with mostly one driver,including a stop in athens ga.This is about 4 or 5 drivers they have lost in 5 years or LESS. I would have a safety check done on the company by the state of ga motor vehicle safety compliance.Its not normal to have a driver killed almost one a year just because they refuse to pay 2 drivers to travel long distances, make you drive 6 days a week 12 and 14 hours per day.. THIS IS SENSELESS!!!!!!!!1

how do you know how many deaths are in other companies that haul mail - I've been hauling mail for 25 years things happen you can't blame a company because someone decided to drive without any sleep as a driver we have the option to just say no I don't feel safe.

I can tell you by looking at the safersys.org safety board how many deaths this company has had.THATS HOW!They have a HORRIBLE safety rating.The FBI currently have them under an investigation.IF you read the murfreesboro newspaper you would have seen the ad where the FBI backed up to their door and loaded their files back in 2013.The drivers will tell you, if you want a day off to rest up, you have to give them 2 weeks notice.DOn't act all innocent.How much were you paid to give your post?

I am currently driving home from work and Alabama a Tracy McCormick truck number 419 is driving erratically. he is speeding..almost hit me and continues to jump from lane to lane. I tried to get a phone number but there was no phone number listed on the trip however I did pull over just to text this message. if there is anyone out there who knows how to get in contact with Tracie McCormick trucking please let me know.

Unless or until you are a USPS Contracted Mail Carrier, you will never know how these trucks are meant to run their routes. The Company DOES NOT make all the planning of these routes the USPS assists. The routes are set up to receive your mail in 2 days. EVERY and I dare say EVERY mail carrier has these same hours. Most traveling is at night to save traffic tie ups from delaying the mail.
Before you bash a company for someone having an accident check out ALL Contracted Mail Carriers safety rating.
If you are not prepared to run hard, committed and dedicated then please never ask to haul mail.

It is truly a sad day when any truck driver leaves for work and doesn't make it home however, that is the risk we as drivers accept when we go to work. Everyday someone leaves for work and never makes it back home, it is what it is.....its called DRIVING!!!!!

That is the post office Falls because they never give you enough time to do you route they always tried to save some money on time they cut this route so bad that you how do you have enough time to go to the restrooms I be running for 10 years because that post office 5500 every time you get lay is the post office falls because if you want to be contracting with them you have to do what they say so other than that you not have no say so yes the post office is the one hum made the companies on this position the USPS do not care by that kind of stuff that's why they have us has a contractors you should have send complain to the USPS internal affairs to check the route time and distance because we humans man I mean
