Local Postal Hero Loses Job

Item: Postal worker hero loses his job; Man who helped save woman on route was in accident on same day/Alecia Warren, CDA Press

More Info: Although neither he nor post office officials were permitted to disclose the details of the situation, his father, David, said Isaac lost his contract because of an incident when his delivery truck skidded on an icy road and knocked into a mailbox. The mailbox was undamaged, but the run-in shattered a window on the truck. Just enough to be deemed an accident -- and it's post office policy not to keep on temporary employees who have been in any accidents, David said. "This involved no people, no other cars," David said. "This is the craziest thing."

Question: Should the post office opt for common sense over policy re: this situation?
