Motorists urged to bee careful after truck crashes with thousands of insects
A truck carrying honeybees scattered hundreds of hives when it overturned on a motorway north of Seattle.
The company that owns the insects sent bee keepers to recover as many as possible.
But the bees became more active as the sun rose and Seattle television stations reported that firefighters sprayed a layer of foam on some of the boxes, killing the bees for safety.
Drivers in the area have been urged to keep their windows closed. The insects covered bee keepers' protective suits as they worked.
