Motorist dies in car filled with bees

A man in the US drove a car while his vehicle was full of thousands of bees.

Police in Montana pulled the man over because they saw the dramatic incident unfolded, as the Russian honey bees escaped from the five separate hives he was transporting, Metro newspaper reports.

Although officers initially assumed the man was moving the bees illegally, they subsequently learned that was not the case, as the man didn't actually need a permit to carry them.

However, the presence of the bees was obscuring his view of the road and so it was unsafe for him to continue to drive.
