That's a lot of bees!

A semi truck was involved in a pretty bad accident Friday on Interstate 405 near Lynnwood, Washington.

And while the driver of the truck was not injured, this crash was a very different type of highway nightmare — the truck was carrying over 14 MILLION BEES!

Many of the $92,000 worth of bees died in the crash and recovery process, but the majority of the bees were saved and put back on their way to pollinate a blueberry farm in Whatcom County.

Luckily, the crash happened around 3:30 am, making it much easier to wrangle the cargo — the sun causes bees to get much more agitated and difficult to handle.

As it is, almost all of the Highway Patrol, media, and other responders on the scene were reportedly stung at least once.

Ouch! We're just glad the driver and most of these bees ended up OK!

Man dies after crashing car into bee infested home! The swarm kept first responders at bay!

A man died in St. Charles, Michigan after crashing his car into an abandoned home.

The crazy part is… well, its unsure whether or not the crash killed him or what happened right after the crash.

The home he hit hadn't had human residents for a while, but it technically wasn't fully abandoned… it was infested with bees.

The bugs spend their larva days in the mud of the Mississippi River until its hatching time, when they swim up to the surface and emerge as adults.

While they do make a great meal for frogs and birds and more, there are just so many of them it's crazy.
