Detroit — It was a real wing-dinger.

A section of northbound Interstate 75 was closed for hours Tuesday morning after a truck carrying chicken wings banged into the median wall, sending boxes of wings flying across the road.

The avian avalanche occurred at about 1:30 a.m. on northbound I-75 near the I-96 interchange. No one was injured in the crash but the freeway was closed for hours, according to Lt. Michael Shaw of the Michigan State Police.

"The crash caused boxes of frozen wings to be scattered around the roadway," Shaw said. "They had to be picked up and the wings still on the truck had to be unloaded. There was also a fuel spill. It was a matter of cleaning up the load and getting it out of there."

The freeway was reopened to traffic at about 6:30 a.m. 222-2023
