Animal parts spilled onto Interstate 35E led to a multi-vehicle crash near Commerce Street early Tuesday morning in downtown Dallas.

Authorities shut down a portion of the interstate as they worked to clear the scene.

The chicken parts were believed to have been spilled onto the interstate by another vehicle prior to the crash, according to Melinda Urbina, a spokeswoman with Dallas County Sheriff's Department. The vehicle didn't stay at the scene. Authorities are investigating.

No one was injured in the crash.
