RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A three-year-old girl in Chesterfield is lucky to be alive after she was struck by a mail carrier.
The accident happened last Friday afternoon in the 1800 block of Creek Bottom Way.
That's off of Providence Road.
The Times-Dispatch reports the U.S. postal worker was pulling away from a mailbox when the child was hit and knocked to the ground.
Police say she was taken to the hospital as a precaution but did not suffer any serious injuries.
The mail carrier was not charged.
