The Georgia State Patrol has released preliminary information, about an accident on Back Berryton Road on Wednesday, February 7th. According to the State Patrol – “Troopers were dispatched to an incident involving A 2017 Kenworth commercial motor vehicle hauling a full load of poultry – and was traveling north on Back Berryton Road.
While negotiating a curve the truck driver left the roadway off of the east shoulder causing the vehicle to overturn onto its side while sliding down a small embankment. The load of poultry separated from the trailer and caused hundreds of chickens to scatter around the scene.
The driver suffered minor injuries and was transported to the Chattooga County Emergency Room.” The roadway was shut down over the next few hours as the tow company and chicken farm workers cleaned up the crash scene.
