The 26-year-old from Georgia was cruising down the highway in her red four-door sedan more than a week ago when she spotted the truck and decided to smash into it. When the truck driver slammed on the brakes, Armstrong hit the vehicle again and spun in front of it, cutting it off.
She then fled the scene as the truck driver pulled over to call 911.
Authorities were able to track her down at her home as she left her license plate at the scene. She admitted to the deed, saying that she was a vegan and hit the truck due to it being a chicken truck.
Major Jeffrey Vaughn from the Madison County Sheriff’s office said the chickens were picked up from a local farm and Armstrong was looking out for the safety of the birds.
“She was protecting the life of those little baby chickens… she thought,” said Vaughn.
No chickens were injured in the accident and the truck was also undamaged.
Armstrong was charged of hit-and-run, aggressive driving, driving under the influence and obstruction. She was released on a $5,250 bond.
