WEBER COUNTY, Utah – A truck carrying thousands of pounds of chicken tipped over during an accident in Weber County Monday.

According to Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Todd Royce, the incident happened on U.S. 89 and 6300 S. at around 5:09 p.m. Monday.

An 80,000-pound semi carrying chicken tipped on its side, most likely due to speed, Royce said.

The highway in that area was closed down while crews worked on cleanup.
