GAINESVILLE -- A chicken truck overturned on Thompson Bridge Road three miles from the Fieldale Farms’ Murrayville plant, sending the fowl into the grassy field along the highway.
The wreck happened around 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, on Thompson Bridge Road near Willow Oak Drive. Another shipping truck was involved but appeared to have no damage.
Traffic was stalled northbound while authorities and other workers tried to hoist the truck.
A person on scene confirmed no one was hurt, though a number of the chickens were not as fortunate.
