Calgary Semi Crash: Chicken Parts Spill Over City's Busiest Road

CALGARY - Why were chicken parts spread across Calgary's busiest road?

Because a semi crashed Friday afternoon during rush hour, and a large part of its load of chicken parts spewed out on Deerfoot Trail.

Fire officials say the chicken parts covered two of the northbound lanes for about a half-kilometre.

Workers spent the next few hours cleaning up the mess.
