"There will be a shortage of chicken now" a person reacted on Facebook post.
Talk of chicken snacks and nuggets are easily one of the first dishes that will cross your mind. It is, after all, one of the most popular dishes around the world. Not only are they available at almost every restaurant, fast-food chain and café, it is also one of those simple items you can easily prepare at home. Perhaps, that is why it is loved by people across age groups. If you ask me, I cannot let even one chicken nugget go to waste. So obviously this recent incident from the US is a bit more painful for me, and would be for anyone who really likes chicken nuggets. Recently a truck carrying chicken nuggets in the US overturned on the road, and the traffic had to be stopped for several hours. According to the Sellersville Volunteer Fire Department, the collision spilled about 18,000 kg of chicken nuggets on the road. Yes, you heard the quantity right! The Sellersville Volunteer Fire Department even took Facebook to post about the same incident.
Their Facebook post explained, "At 6:26 AM, SFD volunteers were alerted to a one vehicle accident in the southbound lanes of the Sellersville Bypass, just north of the Telford exit. Chief and Assistant 27 arrived to find a tractor trailer that had partially left the roadway, with the contents of the trailer spilled onto the highway and shoulder. Engine 27 was directed to access the scene by traveling north in the southbound lanes from the Route 152 interchange."
The post also said that the driver was out of the vehicle and they were able to secure the hazards associated with the crash. “Fire police from numerous surrounding companies assisted with closing the roadway and detouring all southbound traffic. The cause of the incident is under investigation, and the roadway remained closed for several hours until the cargo and truck could be removed from the roadway," the post further said. Take a look at their full Facebook post here:
The internet was ablaze with several reactions on the Facebook post. One person wrote, "My daughter was behind the truck when it happened. Called 911 as well!”, while another person said, "Wonder if speed was a factor in this accident? I no longer live down there, but when I was in the area a few weeks ago, I was doing 55, and people were flying past me like I was sitting still in that construction zone!"
Someone also added, "That will answer all the heavy traffic coming through the center of Sellersville this morning and up on Ridge Road. What a nightmare!"
Many people also made sarcastic comments. One person said, "There will be a shortage of chicken now." Another user added, "Coincidentally, Sellersville Fire Company will be having Chicken Nugget night next Friday as a fundraising event." Someone also said, "40k pounds of frozen chicken nuggets."
