Why did the chicken(s) cross the road?
What happens when 1,000 chickens cross the road?
LONDON (AP) — A busy highway near Oxford in central England was closed in both directions Friday when around 1,000 chickens escaped from a truck that collided with four other vehicles, injuring four people.
"They were all over the carriageway," said a spokesman for Thames Valley Police.
The birds' escape could be short-lived: Thousands of shooting enthusiasts, game keepers and falconers are in the area for a game fair organized by the Country Land and Business Association.
"We are going to ask (them) if there are any wagons or nets that we can use to get the chickens together," said the police spokesman, who spoke with customary anonymity.
