If you're looking for something to arrive in the mail, you might want to keep a close eye on it. Authorities say mail got accidentally scattered across 65 miles of interstates in Missouri.
(KMOV) The Missouri Highway Patrol says parcels of mail were found scattered on I-270. Pieces and boxes of mail reportedly reached from Maryland Heights to I-55 in Jefferson County.
U.S. Postal Inspector Dan Taylor says the mail came from a contractor's truck, who was taking the mail on a long haul from St. Louis to Memphis for the U.S. Postal Service. A door was either left open or somehow opened during the drive.The Highway Patrol had eight patrols between the two points picking up the mail, most of which was collected by 9:30 a.m. Sunday.
