A postal worker was killed Saturday after a tree fell onto his vehicle at a DeKalb County golf course.
DeKalb County fire Capt. Eric Jackson said the male postal worker was driving on the premises of Lithonia’s Mystery Valley Golf Club when, around 12:30 p.m., a tree “that appeared to be in poor health” fell from the side of the roadway and struck him. The vehicle careened off the road, down a short hillside and into another tree.
The impact from the falling tree likely caused the postal worker’s death, Jackson said.
