TWIN FALLS — An 89-year-old Twin Falls woman was being flown to Boise with life-threatening injuries after she was hit by a U.S. Postal Service vehicle Wednesday morning in the Meander Point Subdivision.
The USPS mail carrier, whose name has not been released, was backing up at a low speed about 11 a.m. when the vehicle hit Lila Chidichimo, Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lori Stewart said.
Chidichimo was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls, Stewart said, then by air ambulance to St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise.
The mail carrier “just didn’t see” Chidichimo, Stewart said, but stopped the vehicle after hitting her and called 911.
