CENTRALIA, Wash. - Numerous chickens were killed or injured when a truck overturned Tuesday in Centralia.
The Lewis County sheriff's office says a truck pulling trailers with about 5,000 chickens in crates rolled on a soft shoulder at a corner because the driver was going too fast. The 22-year-old was treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
The chickens were being transported from a farm to the Foster Farms processing plant in Kelso.
The sheriff's office says the injured birds were euthanized.
