10,000 Chicks Scattered Across Road After Lorry Crash

We're used to beer bottles, vegetables and more being spilled from trucks. This is a little different.

Thousands of chicks were scattered across a road after a lorry crashed in China.

The truck was carrying more than 10,000 chicks to a poultry farm in the city of Binzhou, in the Shandong Province, when the vehicle crashed sideways into the highway barrier.

The driver didn't suffer any major injuries. Nearby villagers rushed to help collect chicks in boxes and wash basins.

Chicks worth nearly £5,000 were reportedly looted. It is not known how many died in the crash.
