Tractor-trailer runs ‘a-fowl’ at Jenkins







A small loader gathers up raw chickens along U.S. 23 on Sunday after a wreck at Jenkins. Jenkins Police Officer Jim Stephens said a truck carrying the chickens overturned as it attempted to negotiate the sharp turn onto U.S. 119 toward Whitesburg from U.S. 23. Stephens said the truck was hauling about 20 tons of refrigerated chicken down Pine Mountain when it overturned. The payload had to be offloaded before the truck could be righted and the scene cleared. The driver of the truck was not injured. Stephens said speed was likely a factor. The intersection has been the site of numerous tractor-trailer wrecks. (Photo by Chris Anderson)
