Bees block interstate traffic after accident


CLARKSVILLE, Tennessee (WSMV) – A swarm of bees around a tractor-trailer is not a sight you typically see along side the interstate.

However Monday a semi hauling beehives was involved in an accident on Interstate 24 at the Tennessee-Kentucky state line.

“All I seen is the white vehicle come across, then that other truck with a trailer,” said Thomas Gentry, who was hauling the bees.

“They’re just swarming down there by the trailer,” said Gentry. “They’ll come back and get back in their hives.”
