Bee-Carrying Truck Overturns

From the Seattle PI, a truck carrying nine million bees overturned in Montana.

A tractor-trailer overturned on a curve on a highway, spilling its load of hundreds of bee hives and unleashing some nine million angry honey bees.

The bees buzzed furiously as driver Lane Miller, has arm scraped to the bone, struggled to flee his rig after it overturned Monday in Bear Trap Canyon west of Bozeman. The truck slid across the highway before coming to a stop between guardrails.

I don't know how willing I'd be to run through a cloud of angry bees even if I was missing most of the skin off my arm.
