      A 38-year-old man has died from his injuries after a Sunday morning accident involving a mailbox and a tree on Brittany Road.

      Albany police say that the accident happened around 11:00 a.m. Sunday as Elmer Wester III was driving a 2003 Ford F-250 south on Brittany Road.

      Wester struck a large brick mailbox at 2604 Brittany Road and then hit a tree at the next residence over, with the driver's side door taking most of the impact according to APD.

      Wester was the only passenger and was transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for treatment, but passed away Sunday evening.

      The accident remains under investigation by the APD Traffic Unit.
