AUTAUGA COUNTY, AL. (WSFA) - An 18-wheeler tanker truck carrying a load of chicken blood crashed and overturned on Interstate 65 in Autauga County just before 10:00am Thursday.
Some of the chicken blood, used in the creation of makeup and dog food, spilled out of the truck as a result. ALDOT, the EMA and ADEM worked to contain and clean up the spillage.
State troopers closed one lane of I-85 northbound, but after the load was pumped into another container and the truck was removed, official reopened the roadway.
The drive was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured in the crash.
An investigation shows that a problem with the vehicle's brakes caused the driver to lose control and overturn.
