MILLBRAE (KRON) — A United States Postal Service big rig overturned and blocked a Highway 101 off-ramp in Millbrae Friday morning.

The crash happened just before 7 a.m. at the Millbrae Avenue off-ramp from southbound Hwy 101, according to USPS spokesman Augustine Ruiz.

This big rig was traveling from San Francisco to Burlingame when it overturned for an unknown reason, Ruiz said.

The driver of the big rig, a USPS employee, was transported to Stanford Hospital with injuries that appear to be non-life threatening.

The big rig was carrying letter class mail, parcels, and ‘flats’ in containers, according to Ruiz.

Some of the mail spilled out onto the road, however, USPS crews were able to retrieve all the mail.

No mail was reportedly lost or damaged, Ruiz said.
