In southern Utah, an 18-wheeler overturned, releasing its cargo… millions of bees!!
25 million to be exact.
Officials closed down the road as the angry swarms of millions of bees flew around the interstate.
Even though the driver and passenger of the truck and several emergency responders on the scene were stung, no one was seriously injured.
Beekeepers were eventually brought in to help.
They took the boxes that housed the bee colonies and set them out. One beekeeper said:
"A lot of bees will go back in. After dark they don't fly, they just crawl around."
They are estimating about two-thirds of the 25 million bees were recovered.
The rest are going to stay around the same stretch of highway for a week or so before dispersing, so motorists on I-15 in southern Utah are being told to keep their windows shut.
Last thing you need while driving is a couple million bees flying into your car.
