Decatur firefighters and other city employees were handed the less-than-pleasant task of cleaning up chicken parts that spilled from a truck onto 13th St. near Adams St. around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
The smelly cleanup took nearly an hour.
The driver of the truck did not stop and was the subject of a lengthy search. Police said the driver may not have been aware of the spill.
A fire truck was used to wash down the street.
