Colbert family grieving after UPS driver runs over dog – KXLY

“Came down my driveway and I found my dog, Moses, dead there with blood coming out of his ears and nose and big cuts on his head,” Bill Ferguson said.

The ten year old Labrador was run over by a United Parcel Service vehicle. UPS said, in an emailed statement, that the driver saw both of the dogs well behind the truck when heading up the driveway, but at some point Moses started following the truck.

“One of the dogs unfortunately was chasing the vehicle, biting at the tires and before our driver could stop the dog ran fast enough to get in front of the rear tire,” UPS spokesperson Dan McMackin said.

UPS: How the World’s Largest Package Delivery Service Began – Market Realist

A look at the UPS timeline

United Parcel Service (UPS), originally called American Messenger Company, was founded in 1907 by 19-year-old James E. Casey with $100 borrowed from a friend. It started as a messenger service in the Seattle, Washington, area with just one bicycle. Most deliveries were done on foot. More distant ones were done by bicycle.

In 1913, the company acquired its first delivery car, a Ford Model T. UPS took its first steps outside Seattle in 1919, when it expanded its operations to California and Oakland. In 1924, UPS became the first courier company to introduce the conveyor belt system for handling packages.

A seasoned delivery driver for UPS finally noticed strange patterns in packages sent under Stockton’s name and alerted police, investigators say.
