Traffic collision

The mail delivery vehicle is towed away at the scene. 

Saturday evening at 5:49 p.m., Yucaipa deputies responded to a traffic collision at Bryant Street and Avenue D in Yucaipa. A U.S. postal carrier was struck by another vehicle. 

Witnesses said the driver of the other vehicle caused the accident and was most likely under the influence of alcohol.  YPD deputies arrested Francisco V. Florez, 51, of Yucaipa, on DUI charges. Florez is being held at Central Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.  The postal carrier, who was conscious at the time of transport, was taken to the hospital via ambulance.
