It wasn’t the chicken that crossed the road‚ but rather chicken stock that lay all across the road.
At about 6am on Wednesday morning‚ a truck lost its load and hundreds of boxes and sachets of Benny’s chicken stock were strewn on Johannesburg’s N3 North near the Marlboro Road exit‚ near Alexandra.
Traffic on the highway came at a standstill as three lanes were closed and only remained open.
Emer-G-Med paramedics were on the scene‚ but there were no injuries.
Spokesman Max Cohen said: “There were massive‚ massive traffic delays from the N3 North all the way back to Gillooly’s Interchange.”
Radio 702’s Aki Anastasiou said delays of up to three hours could be expected.
Motorists coming from Ekurhuleni were advised to avoid the N3 north and use back roads.
