Semitrailer carrying bees overturns on Montana road

June 11, 2019

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A semitrailer hauling beehives overturned on a Montana road, spilling diesel fuel and honey on the roadway.

The Hyalite Fire Department says the truck took a tight turn and tipped over in a ditch west of Bozeman on Monday afternoon.

Officials say the driver and passenger were not injured.

The truck was traveling from California to drop off the bees in North Dakota. It is unclear how many bees were on the truck and how many escaped.

The intersection of Durston Road and Gooch Hill Road was shut down for several hours as crews cleared the scene.
