Big rig overturns, releasing cargo of angry bees
CNN |
"A tractor-trailer overturned on a curve on a highway, spilling its load of hundreds of bee hives and unleashing some nine million angry honey bees. The bees buzzed furiously as driver Lane Miller, his arm scraped to the bone, struggled to flee his rig after it overturned Monday in Bear Trap Canyon west of Bozeman... The state road was closed for 14 hours as crews and beekeepers cleaned up the 512 hives Miller was hauling from Idaho to North Dakota. In spite of bee suits and extra clothing, beekeeper Gary Clark said he counted about 60 stings of his own... 'The bees were so agitated you could barely see the beekeepers or the wreckage itself, just because of the cloud of bees that were swarming,' said fire chief Shawn Christiansen."
