Truck splat­ters chicken parts across Burling­ton road

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - MICHAEL GRE­GORY

A dump truck left chicken parts splat­tered across a stretch of road in north Burling­ton Thurs­day af­ter­noon as tem­per­a­tures soared.

The truck was pulled over by Hal­ton police at about 11 a.m. after animal scraps spilled out of the rear loader and onto the road.

Hal­ton Police and City of Burling­ton staff both at­tended the scene in the north­bound lanes of Brant Street just south of Dun­das Street.

“It looks like the chicken ex­panded in the heat. When (the driver) put the truck into gear to start at the light, it washed over the sides of the truck,” said Det. Const. Greg Cormier.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors just hap­pened to be in the area when they wit­nessed the mess un­fold.

“(The driver) had al­ready started to turn around on his own ini­tia­tive to go back and see what had hap­pened (when he was pulled over),” Cormier said.

The com­pany cleaned up the mess, and no charges were laid.
