A UPS driver was shot Friday while in Chester.

The incident occurred about 1:30 p.m. in the area of 10th and Highland, according to 6ABC News.

A statement from Susan Rosenberg, UPS public relations director, said the driver was "grazed by a bullet" and the delivery helper in the truck was not injured.

Calls to Chester police were not immediately returned.

"We're grateful there was no serious injury to this experienced 13-year UPS driver. The safety of our personnel is our first priority, and UPS drivers are trained to be aware of their surroundings," Rosenberg stated.

Packages are being transferred to another vehicle to complete service, according to the statement.
