HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Some neighbors in an apartment complex are forced to drive to the post office to get their mail, after a snow plow truck hit the mailbox.

The broken mailbox currently sits on a curb at the Hunter's Ridge apartments. The broken mailbox usually serves neighbors at building 1346.

Matchbox Realty, the company managing the property, said a contractor working on snow removal hit the mailbox after the snow storm two weeks ago.

Cherish Johnson-Reyes said she was not notified about the incident; however, she has been going to the mailbox since it occurred.

"It is just really just an inconvenience. My roommate and I are very busy, she doesn't have a car so when either of us needs something, [it is inconvenient] having to drive out there and spending gas money," said Johnson-Reyes.

Matchbox Realty said it took a while to fix the problem because the homeowners association had to approve the mailbox expense.

The new mailbox is expected to be delivered within 10 business days. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
