This is what happens when a truck of frozen chickens crashes with a lorry carrying bees

This happened.

A BIG-RIG HAULING frozen chicken collided with a truck carrying bees in Southern California, igniting a fireball that quickly cooked the chicken.

The California Highway Patrol says the crash on Interstate 10 near Palm Springs occurred shortly after 7am Monday.

The truck with the chickens burst into flames and was incinerated, but the driver escaped with minor injuries.

The driver hauling the bees was not hurt, although highway patrol officers on the scene reported bees buzzing everywhere.

Photos, meanwhile, showed chunks of blackened, highway-roasted chicken.

The crash closed the interstate’s westbound lanes, and highway patrol officers kept traffic flowing by directing vehicles onto the center median.

A beekeeper was summoned, and the cleanup was expected to last several hours.
