Parkway Closed Wednesday By Chicken Parts
By West Kentucky Star Staff
CALVERT CITY, KY - An accident on the Purchase Parkway involving two semis and at least one pickup had northbound traffic stopped for several hours Wednesday afternoon near Calvert City.

One of the trucks was hauling chicken offal that spilled across the roadway just south of the I-24 interchange at exit 25. KYTC personnel spread sand and other materials, then swept in an attempt to clear the roadway. 

After several rounds of spreading sand and sweeping, a layer of oil dry was put down and all lanes were opened for traffic.
