A Kenworth dump truck was heading north on Route 521 in Hope Township when it crossed the double-yellow line and sideswiped a Grumman Allied LLV U.S. Mail vehicle heading south at milepost .68 near Dogwood Drive around 10:50 a.m. on Thursday, August 4, NJSP Trooper Charles Marchan told DailyVoice.com.

The mail vehicle driver was uninjured, and the dump truck driver suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash.
