Chickens spilled onto a Southern California road Friday morning when a flatbed truck carrying the birds flipped onto its side.
The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. just off the southbound 71 Freeway at Grand Avenue in Chino Hills. Details about the cause of the crash were not immediately available.
Some of the 6,000 chickens on the truck were killed or injured. About 75 percent had to be euthanized due to their injuries. Others were rescued by the Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA.
The driver was not injured.
The exit ramp was closed as crews cleared the road
