    Chickens killed in truck crash in unincorporated Sonoma County on a rainy Thursday morning. (Nov. 17, 2017)

    Dozens of chickens were killed, while a few got loose in a big rig crash on a soggy Thursday morning on northbound Highway 121 in unincorporated Sonoma County.

    Video from the scene showed an overturned truck on the shoulder of the road alongside a vineyard in Schellville, Calif. The driver was stuck inside the vehicle and unable to get out, a Californa Highway Patrol log said around 5:35 a.m. 

    Some fowls that survived the collision ran amok on the freeway's shoulder and a nearby field.

    The crash blocked northbound lanes and prompted the CHP to issue a Sig-alert and close Highway 121 just south of Ramal Road. Cars are being diverted off to Rama and Napa roads.

    It's unclear when the road will reopen.
