Tractor trailer overturns, hundreds of chickens killed

Posted: Updated:

ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) - A truck crash in Ohio has left hundreds of chickens dead, and those that did survive huddled together in a nearby ditch.

The Review in Alliance reports a tractor trailer carrying crates of chickens veered off the road, struck a utility pole and overturned Monday in Stark County's Washington Township.

The road where the crash occurred was closed for several hours.

Washington Township is roughly 35 miles (56 kilometers) southeast of Akron.

The driver of the tractor trailer owned by Case Farms wasn't injured, but was taken to hospital to be tested for controlled substances.

Houses in the area lost power after the accident.

The state Highway Patrol is investigating.
