Po­lice in frozen cock M-may call

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A VAN car­ry­ing 1,000 frozen chick­ens crashed and emp­tied its load on a busy mo­tor­way.

Morn­ing driv­ers were left queue­ing as po­lice, the High­ways Agency and fire­fight­ers strug­gled to re­cover 30 boxes of birds.

The chick­ens flew out of the back of the truck when it ca­reered across three lanes of the M5.

It then smashed into the cen­tral reser­va­tion with such force that the doors flung open – leav­ing the frozen fowl strewn all over the car­riage­way.

A spokesman for Avon Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice said the driver was treated for mi­nor head in­juries af­ter be­ing freed from the ve­hi­cle.

He added: “We were called to re­ports of a sin­gle ve­hi­cle road traf­fic col­li­sion and helped clear the road way of frozen chick­ens.”
