Highway closes after animal parts spill onto pavement

Part of a Kansas City highway was shut down early this morning when a truck hauling animal parts lost some of its load.

The truck apparently had left a local slaughterhouse and was northbound on U.S. 71 near 63rd Street just before 1 a.m. when the mishap occurred.

Joel Blobaum, a spokesman for Missouri Department of Transportation, said the northbound lanes were shut down for about an hour while maintenance crews cleaned up the mess.

Police said no injuries were reported.
