DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Dover police say hundreds of live chickens were scattered on a road after a tractor-trailer hauling the birds fell on its side.

Cpl. Mark Hoffman, a police spokesman, said the truck fell on its side about 4 a.m. Thursday in the area of the U.S. 13/113 split. Hoffman said it is believed the truck's cargo shifted, caused it to fall. No one was injured.

Transportation officials said some lanes of the road were closed for more than five hours, resulting in traffic delays.

The accident is under investigation.
