Vehicle runs into Edwardsville post office; Edwardsville residents will have to drive to KCK to get post office box mail

A vehicle ran into the Edwardsville Post Office at 104 S. 4th St., Edwardsville, this morning, affecting mail service for Edwardsville residents.

Richard Watkins, a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service, said no one was injured in the accident. The driver was taken to the hospital, examined and released, and there was no one inside the building at the time, he said.

He said there was enough structural damage to require the post office to be closed for the time being.

The Edwardsville post office employee will now be working at the Wyandotte West Postal Station at 1310 N. 78th Terrace, Kansas City, Kan., near 78th and State Avenue. That is where about 500 people who have post office boxes in Edwardsville can go to pick up their mail, he added.

Watkins said the postal service will be determining the building’s structural integrity. It is an older two-story building that is leased.

The Postal Inspection Service today removed all mail, stamps, cash and other items from the Edwardsville post office and secured the building, he said.

The Wyandotte West Postal Station will be available to pick up post office box mail from 8:30 to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Postal authorities are currently evaluating the situation and considering future options, Watkins said.
