WEST UNION, Iowa (AP) — Thousands of chickens were killed when a truck crashed in northeast Iowa.

KCRG-TV reports the truck hauling about 5,000 chickens crashed early Tuesday on Highway 18, about a mile west of West Union.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says the 44-year-old driver was heading west when he crashed into a ditch. He and a child passenger were treated for minor injuries.

About half the chickens were killed. The others were loaded onto another truck.
