A truck collided with two other vehicles on a busy North Carolina highway today, upending a swarm of bees onto the road, and trapping at least one news photographer in his car. And every single tweet that local news station WBTV posted about this situation is a gem.

First: A crash. Looks bad. We don’t know much yet.

By the time WBTV—we can’t make this up—arrives on the scene, it’s clear this is no typical crash. Words you never want to hear: “CAN SEE THEM GATHERED.”

 

Suddenly, things get SUPER, SUPER SCARY.

The story gets even wilder from there, with firefighters spraying their hoses at the insects to get them to vacate the premises, and a professional beekeeper arriving on the scene to “deal with the bees.” Whatever that means. (Hope you’re okay, bees!)

But how in the world did bees get involved in this crash? There’s a very good reason, according to WBTV, your local source for buzz:

Officials confirmed one of the vehicles involved was loaded with honey bees and yellow jackets.

Come again?

One of the vehicles involved was loaded with honey bees and yellow jackets.

Wait.

Loaded with honey bees and yellow jackets !
