West Virginia Highway Shuts Down For Chicken And Ammo Wreck

Would you like to hear what the guy has to say about his wide-ranging cargo?

Chickens, AK-47s, ammo, and drugs… yep, this sounds like a West Virginia parody, but is bizarrely, tragically real:

Just before 4 a.m., Seth Grim was driving a 1998 Ford Explorer with Pennsylvania plates and rolled it over on Interstate 79 near Amma, West Virginia. A dog tried to jump out of the window, which might have helped cause the wreck. Unfortunately, the dog later died and Grim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries to his upper torso.

Here’s where the story gets wacky. In the back of his explorer were 35 to 40 chickens along with an AK-47 and a large amount of ammunition. Also in the back of his vehicle was a device that police were extremely concerned about. The “improvised explosives” prompted a higher level of response.

The West Virginia State Police Bomb Squad out of Williamson was sent to the scene and removed the device.
