The driver, 21-year-old Seth Grim, allegedly lost control of the car when his dog tried to jump out, Roane County Sheriff’s Deputies told WSAZ-TV.

Grim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The dog later died. Several of the chickens died, according to a reporter for WOWKTV.

When deputies searched the vehicle they reportedly discovered an alarming amount of ammunition, guns, including an AK-47, marijuana and explosives. A bomb technician removed explosives which will undergo further testing in a lab, State Police told MetroNews.

Grim, of Pennsylvania, sustained upper body injuries and was released from the hospital.

He is charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver and is being held at South Central Regional Jail.

After four hours, I-79 was re-opened in the both directions at 8:20 a.m.

So... a SUV with PA plates wrecks on I-79 early this morning and it's carrying 36 chickens, guns and IEDS? What the... ?
