DUVAL COUNTY, Fla. – It’s simply un-bee-lievable!
A big rig crashed into a truck carrying about 1 million bees early Tuesday near a Florida interstate, sending thousands of the winged insects into traffic.
The wreck happened around 3:15 a.m. on U.S. Highway 301 at the entrance ramp to I-10 east.
The Florida Highway Patrol said a tractor-trailer driven by a 26-year-old Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, man collided into the bee-hauling truck, which was being driven by a 20-year-old Jesup, Georgia, man. Neither driver was injured, the FHP said.
“There are thousands of bees in the area after the collision,” troopers said in an FHP crash report.
A beekeeper was called to the scene to recover the insects.
