Authorities in Missouri said a highway was closed for more than 2 hours after a truck spilled several hundred pounds of chicken parts onto the road.

Monarch Fire Protection District Fire Marshal Roger Herin said the unidentified truck spilled the chicken parts onto eastbound Highway 40/Interstate 64 in Chesterfield about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and the poultry was tracked for about a mile by cars driving through the mess, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday.

"Whoever dropped the chicken stuff did not stop," Herin said. "It's a mess."

"It's slick for quite a ways," Herin said. "It smells like rotten meat."

The Missouri Department of Transportation said firefighters and highway workers spent more than 2 hours cleaning up the spill and sanding the road. Traffic was allowed back into the affected lanes about 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.
