California carrier working at back of mail truck dies after being struck by car 

A postal worker who died after a car hit him while he was out delivering mail in Commerce Monday morning will be remembered as a man who loved his family, God and the Dodgers, loved ones said.

Joel Perales, 58, was fatally struck around 10 a.m. in the 2100 block of South Atlantic Boulevard, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Mejia.

His family says he was at the back of his postal truck, pulling out mail and packages to deliver, when he was hit by a car that had apparently lost control.

Footage from the scene shows a white coupe lodged underneath the back end of the postal truck, which had a shattered windshield and appeared to have itself smashed into the rear of a large container truck.
