Commuters experienced an unusual cause for their travel trouble when a chicken brought drivers to a standstill at a California toll plaza. 

There were many nail biting moments in Wednesday morning’s commute.

CHP officers chased a chicken at the Bay Bridge toll plaza. 

The chicken had been running loose for almost four hours when officers finally closed in. 

For much of the morning, the hen was a hazard and at the same time a hilarious car pool lane violation. 

Drivers did not know what to do. 

People could not help but stop their cars to snap photos of the chicken. 

As the chase continued, traffic backed up for miles on the Oakland side of the bridge. 

Finally, the chicken was cornered.
