Witnesses said it appeared the FedEx driver, 43-year-old William Convery III of South Bound Brook, was outside his van gathering packages from the back when the out-of-control minivan came barreling down the quiet residential block, 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reported.
The minivan struck Convery, a married father of three, and then slammed into the delivery truck, Woodbridge police said. Convery was only driving the route Friday because he was doing a favor for a co-worker.
