SEATTLE, Wash. — A semi-truck carrying as many as 14 million bees has overturned in Seattle Friday morning.

Boxes of bees were tossed onto Interstate 5, causing the bees to escape.

Workers in bee keeping suits are trying to gather the bees.

Foam is also being sprayed on the bees to calm them down.

A reporter from KCPQ-TV said the man driving the truck, who was not injured, was very upset about the many bees that were killed in the crash.

According to the boxes on the road, the hives were headed to a honey farm.
