Sticky situation on I-90

Posted:

ST. CHARLES, Minn. (KTTC-TV) -- Quite a buzz Tuesday morning on I-90 near St. Charles and Lewiston.

A flat bed truck overturned around 6:45 a.m. carrying 150 bee hives.  Each hive contained 30,000 bees.

Millions of the bees escaped and created a wild situation.

Professional bee keepers were asked to come in and help contain the bees, while the State Patrol tried to clear the scene.

Winona County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude says there were "bees everywhere." He says the driver was briefly stuck and passers-by tried to help, but there were too many bees. He eventually crawled to safety, but was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester with injuries and later released.
