Car containing man, dog, 40 chickens, AK-47, improvised explosives and marijuana rolled over

Just before 4am on Friday, Seth Grim was driving a Ford Explorer with Pennsylvania plates and rolled it over on Interstate 79 near Amma, West Virginia. A dog tried to jump out of the window, which might have helped cause the wreck.

Unfortunately, the dog later died and Grim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries to his upper torso. In the back of his explorer were 35 to 40 chickens along with an AK-47 and a large amount of ammunition.

 Also in the back of his vehicle was a device that police were extremely concerned about. The "improvised explosives" prompted a higher level of response. The West Virginia State Police Bomb Squad out of Williamson were sent to the scene and removed the device.

Initially, all of the chickens were reported to have made it out alive, however it is believed some of the chickens died. Grim, 21, is being charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Officers saw a quart jar of what they believed to be marijuana in the front seat. He's being held in the South Central Regional Jail on a $25,000 bond.
