A Long Island post office worker who was late for his job should be thanking his lucky stars.
A sports utility vehicle went off the road and crashed through the wall of the post office on Babylon Turnpike in Roosevelt just before 7 a.m. Monday.
He's usually at work by that time, but said he was late on Monday because his mother was in the hospital.
"I would have been dead ... I would have been gone," Owens said.
