STATHAM, Ga. -- Two separate accidents involving chickens backed up traffic across the region Friday morning.
In Oconee County, a tractor trailer carrying live chickens overturned and caught fire on westbound Highway 316 near Dials Mill Road. Two right lanes were closed heading away from Athens.
In the Canton area, chicken parts spilled on the roadway after a wreck on northbound Interstate 575 at Cumming Highway. That accident has since cleared.
