The Great Alabama Chicken Tender Fender Bender of 2019
Saturday night (1/5) was an exciting day for drivers.
Highway 35 had an 18 wheeler accident where boxes of chicken tenders were spilled all over the highway. With the cargo unloaded across the lanes, it appears many motorists stopped to pick up some boxes before leaving. The ones who got the first picks probably got the only semi-safe chicken.
It got so bad with people stopping to pick up the chicken that the local police had to put out a public service announcement. They warned people that it was illegal to impede traffic and that anybody caught taking the chicken would face charges.
It appears that all chicken was removed from the highway roughly 72 hours after the accident. We will have to wait an see if there is a spike in hospital visits in this area in the next few days.
