SAN DIEGO – A semi-truck carrying chickens overturned on a San Diego freeway Monday allowing some of the freed chickens to run wild, highway officers said.
The truck rolled over at 8:50 p.m. on state Route 94 in Dulzura, California Highway Patrol officers said. Officers stopped westbound traffic to catch about a dozen chickens that were running free, while a few dozen chickens died in the crash.
Two vehicles attempting to avoid the overturned truck and animals collided, the officer said.
The highway was expected to be open by midnight.
