A HOUSTON MOTHER WANTS THE NAME OF A MAILMAN WHO SHE SAYS HIT HER DAUGHTER’S CAR AND LEFT THE SCENE.
YENIT JIMENEZ SAYS HER DAUGHTER WAS HIT BY THE UNITED STATES POSTAL WORKER IN HIS MAIL TRUCK BACK IN FEBRUARY.
JIMENEZ SAYS AFTER THE LETTER CARRIER BACKED UP INTO HER DAUGHTER’S VEHICLE HE GAVE HER A FALSE NAME AND THEN TOLD THE TEENAGER THERE WAS NOTHING SHE COULD DO ABOUT IT BECAUSE HE IS A FEDERAL WORKER.
THE FACTOR CONTACTED THE POSTAL SERVICE AND THEY SAY THEY’RE INVESTIGATING THE MATTER AND THEY WILL PAY THE CLAIM FOR THE DAMAGES.
HOWEVER, JIMENEZ SAYS SHE WANTS THE DRIVER’S NAME SO THEY CAN FILE HIT AND RUN CHARGES AGAINST HIM WITH THE HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT.
