Full force

NC Postmaster

Shane Johnston is a man on a mission.

The Mocksville, NC, Postmaster recently returned to work after experiencing an auto accident that changed his life and the way he looks at driving.

Johnston, while stopped at a red light, was hit from behind at full force by a distracted driver. Emergency responders think the other driver was preoccupied with her cellphone at the time.

“It can happen to anyone,” said Johnston, who endured several surgeries for a neck injury stemming from the accident.

He is sharing his story with his fellow postal employees, advising them to always be safe behind the wheel.

“Think about consequences before they occur,” Johnston said.
