NACOGDOCHES, Texas (AP) - Now here's a gutsy wreck.

A trucker required medical attention Tuesday after a tanker full of chicken renderings spilled on a Nacogdoches highway.

A hazardous materials crew was called in to clean up the mess from waste from a Pilgrim's Pride chicken plant.

Several thousand pounds of innards spilled.

A spokesman with DLS Haz Mat says a natural peat moss has been sprayed on the site to absorb the strong odor.

The top soil will be scraped off and hauled out. The grass will be replanted.
