    I came across this on the web. It appears "Walter Hugh Campbell's workday was probably shaping up to be pretty much like normal. Until a section of the bridge fell while he and his truck, loaded with chickens, were crossing. It could have been exciting for the chickens, for they were on a one-way trip to the processing plant; now they had a world to experience outside the chicken house."

    From what I can tell this occurred in Chatham County, NC and the area is now called the "Chicken Bridge". No mention of how this 1950 truck was rescued.



    The full story is here:

    I wonder if the other three trucks in the convoy were Studebakers?

    Lotsa Larks!

            And all of us firmly believe that Studebaker truck WAS rescued and put back to work! Not a doubter in the bunch of us. It takes more than a little bridge collapse to put an end to a Stude truck.
