A truck contracted to carry Canada Post mail and packages went off the road last month and burst into flames.
Crown corporation spokesperson Phil Legault said the transport truck slid off the road into a ditch along Highway 97 near Hixon, about 60 kilometres south of Prince George, on Nov. 13, and caught fire. The driver was not injured.
“Unfortunately, all of the Canada Post product was destroyed along with the truck,” Legault told Black Press Media by email on Tuesday, following a tip from a reader.
He said customers who didn’t get mail they were expecting should contact the sender or call Canada Post’s customer service line at 1-800-267-1177.
The corporation has not said how many items of mail were destroyed.
