BRAIN ON DRUGS:
Thousands of chicken nuggets are currently strewn across a Newport, Tennessee, intersection after the Cocke County Emergency Management Agency says a train and a tractor trailer were involved in an accident. "Chicken nuggets for blocks!" Newport resident Linda Witson told WVLT News. According to officials, a refrigerated trailer was carrying 39,000 pounds of Tyson chicken nuggets when it was involved in an accident with a rail car at the intersection of Main Street and Woodlawn Avenue. The pictures shared by Cocke County EMA shows at least a hundred boxes strewn across the ground, likely each holding dozens of nuggets a piece. There were no injuries reported, but the intersection is currently shut down while the boxes of chicken nuggets are cleaned up.
