In Southern California near the city of Coachella, a semi-truck carrying frozen chicken crashed into a truck transporting thousands of bees. The result? Cooked chicken. USA Today reported the crash on Interstate 10 occuring shortly after 7 a.m. on Monday, leaving many motorists stuck in traffic for hours. One trucker, stuck in traffic, called the crash "toxic." Donald Weasley told the reporters, "It was as bad as it could be."
Stacks of barbecued chicken was piled up near the truck's charred remains. Most of the 25,000 pounds of frozen chicken, however, was spilled and left in a slimy heap in the middle of the road. While neither of the drivers were seriously injured, the mess left on the road was another story. Thousands of bees were buzzing around the meat, requiring a beekeeper to help remove the bees from the scene. Dozens of them, however, remained on the freeway and slowly died along the road.
