Bees swarming Delaware accident close highway ramp

As many as 20 million bees swarmed an accident near Newark, NJ., on Tuesday after a tractor trailer hauling them overturned.

The driver and two passengers were stung 50 to 100 times each while escaping the vehicle. Bee handlers and fire fighters used water to attempt to disperse the bees. Late Tuesday, investigators were still unable to approach the truck.
