Australia Post delivery goes horribly wrong
An Australia Post delivery van was caught on camera smashing a customer’s garage door during a delivery that went awry.
In a video uploaded to Reddit, a delivery van is seen entering a customer’s driveway and appearing to park.
A few moments later, as seen in the video above, we see the driver walking to the front door of the house with a package in his hand.
As he walks through the front door, unwittingly, the van moves forward, before hitting the customer’s garage.
The driver, who realized that the van was moving just before colliding with the house, was later seen jumping into the vehicle and stopping it.
He then reverses and stops the vehicle.
A timestamp on the video, which was labeled “Australia Post is deploying drive-thru, suggests the incident happened on Wednesday morning.
The Reddit user who posted the video said Australia Post insurance will pay for the garage repairs.
“No one was injured and no cars were in the garage,” the user wrote.
The user added that the incident was a “frustrating and stupid” error, but praised the driver for acknowledging the accident.
“He called his manager who knew what had happened, so he confessed. Although I offered pictures and he said they shouldn’t need it, ”he said.
An Australia Post spokesperson told 7NEWS they were organizing to repair the damage.
“An Australia Post employee was involved in an incident down the aisle of a customer,” they said.
“We immediately contacted the customer to apologize for the inconvenience and to organize the repair of the damage. “
