CLINTON, Miss. (WJTV) – A newspaper delivery man was out doing his job when all of a sudden he was hit by a car.
However, it didn’t keep him from finishing his paper route.
John Cole was going about his morning, delivering the Saturday newspaper to houses in Clinton but his routine came to a screeching halt along Highway 49.
“I was coming down from Pinehaven, I was coming down the right side. The lady fell asleep and hit me in the back.” Cole said.
Cole says he had a passenger in the backseat packaging newspapers.
She had to be taken to the hospital along with the driver who rear-ended him.
“I’ve been doing the same thing for about three years. Same routine. They’ve been getting over. This time, that didn’t happen,” Cole said.
While his car looks completely destroyed… that’s not stopping him from delivering newspapers.
“I got a few more to go. I’ve got a lady now to come help me finish,” Cole said. “I’ve got to get them on out.”
