Do you want to eat chicken cooked in a truck crash, perhaps not; a semi-truck which was carrying frozen chicken collided with another truck that was carrying thousands of bees in Southern California. When both collided, it was a fiery crash that cooked the chicken.
The crash occurred after 7 a.m. around on Monday as reported by the California Highway Patrol. Because of the crash hundred of motorists including super bowl attendees got stuck in traffic for several hours. The trucks were traveling west and one of the drivers tried to pass the slower moving semi-truck as according to California Highway Patrol Officer Stephanie Hamilton.
Phoenix resident Eduardo Garcia, 45, driver lost the control of his vehicle that was carrying frozen chicken and crashed. His truck got destroyed in the fire resulting in smoke that could be viewed across the Coachella Valley. There were stacks of barbecued chicken that got piled up in the front of the truck’s charred remains and 25,000 pounds of frozen chicken got spilled out of boxes and they were blackened, not eatable roasted chicken.
Because of the crash, the interstate’s westbound lanes closed and highway patrol officers diverted the traffic by the way of center divider. Debris and diesel fuel spill were removed and roads got cleaned. The other truck was transporting the bees and parked on a side road.
Garcia was taken for check-up to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs for minor injuries of his face and other truck driver, Roberto Diaz, 60, of Miami was not injured but he did not discuss anything with the reporters. All the bees that were humming died on the road, a beekeeper arrived to help. The lanes that were closed due to accident, reopened on Monday afternoon.
