[Metro.co.uk] Sheriff’s deputy Brandon Jenkins was called to the truck crash in Wake County, North Carolina on Tuesday morning – and arrived at the scene to find that the spilled content of the truck consisted of 60 boxes of honey bees.
Unfortunately, he managed to show up just after the sun had risen and roused ther sleepy bees from their torpor – causing them swarm around his car.
Jenkins was forced to shut himself inside his vehicle as the tens of thousands of bees covered the car, while he waited for beekeeping experts to be called in to remove the bees.
The beekeepers eventually managed to calm the bees down using smoke – but not before Jenkins had to kill a few bees who found their way into the car.
‘It was more or less self-defense. There were a couple of bees in my personal space, my comfort zone, and I just wanted to get them out,’ he explained.
