LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A United States Postal Service mail carrier who died in a Las Vegas crash was laid to rest Sunday.

More than 50 postal vehicles accompanied the family of 62-year-old Alton Hall for a procession.

Hall was killed on Nov. 14 near the intersection of Mt. Hood Street and Owens Avenue.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the driver of a car did not observe a stop sign at the intersection and slammed into a USPS truck driven by Hall. The post office truck flipped, and Hall was thrown from the vehicle. He died at the scene.

Kathy Hand, Las Vegas Postmaster, expressed sentiments on the loss “At the end of every day we are family. In our success. In our joy. And now in our sorrow. We lost one of our own and we stand together today as one.”
