The 18-wheeler appeared to have been carrying boxes that have spilled across the interstate. Those boxes appear to contain frozen chickens.

One van was on its side in the middle of boxes spilled across the interstate.


Police say there was also a fuel spill related to the crash.

It’s unclear what led to the crash or if anyone was injured.
