A south bound 18-wheeler hauling live chickens overturned in a ditch on Highway 243 just before 4 a.m. Monday morning. Fortunately there were no injuries, however there was a serious cleanup required with chickens and chicken coups on the roadway after the truck was righted and removed from the scene. Pebble firemen were called out for traffic control and to block the highway from Highway 195 to County Road 93 at Pebble. They were there for just over 7 hours, till just after 11 a.m. While there were no injuries, there were an undetermined number of chicken causalities.
