TRACY -- You’ve got mail, but this delivery isn’t one anyone wants.

A stolen mail truck crashed into a Tracy home. The Tracy Police Department said it happened around 11 a.m. Wednesday along Cabrillo Drive.

Broken glass and pottery are scattered on the sidewalk, a garage wall split open after a mail truck crashed into the home. Investigators said two people stole the truck from a worker who was delivering mail about two blocks away.

The thieves ran off after slamming into the home. We spoke to a woman who lives at the home, she asked us not to show her face.

“Right now, I’m feeling kind of nervous because all the cars around here are going really fast and the police don’t even do anything,” she said.

The crash also damaged the home’s lawn, the family’s spare washer, dryer and refrigerator. Fortunately, no one was home at the time and that’s blessing. The renter was who is eight months pregnant was eating breakfast. She raced home worried about her dogs.

“I was thinking about our dogs, actually because they were in the house and I was just thinking about them,” she explained. The dogs were found unharmed.

The family does not have renters insurance. The postal worker, we understand, was not injured. Investigators have not told us whether that worker left the keys inside the truck.
