Whether you’re allergic or not, this is pretty much a nightmare scenario. A truck traveling on Interstate 5 in Lynwood, Washington, crashed while merging, tipped the truck, and spilled 13 million bees on the highway.
Thirteen. Point seven. MILLION.
That’s a lot of bees.
Sure, it’s not as bad as, say, a tanker truck exploding near you. Or one of those trucks that haul gas cylinders going ballistic.
But 13 million bees? No, thank you. Not even a little.
Worse yet, many of the bees were killed in the accident, but many are still roaming the area.
Beekeepers have been called in to round up the errant Apidae.
Head over to the Washington Post for photos of the carnage.
