04/18/11 116 W, 1 I - + 1 - 5 Truck Carrying 3,600 Chickens Crashes Into Surry County Fire Station

FireNews reports on an unusual incident this morning in Surry County, where a tractor-drawn truck carrying 3,600 chickens struck the Mountain Park Fire Department. That's near Elkin. The incident was the result of a two-vehicle accident, versus fowl weather related. And the cluck truck didn't just wing the fire department building, but struck the thing straight on. The Elkin Tribune also has details and photos. The accident involved a collision with a minivan. There were no injuries to people, though it appears a number of feathered passengers did not survive the egg roll. See this WGHP story for more photos. Thank you and good night.
