Truck driver tells of moment 25 million bees escaped

Only one word comes readily to mind here - Ouch!  When 25 million bees escape and have only one thing on their stinging mind, it's time to be somewhere else - fast!

Truck driver Louis Holst has never been scared of bees, but he's rethinking his next long-haul load a day after being swarmed by 25 million of the stinging insects. Holst and his wife, Tammie, picked up 460 bee hives in South Dakota and were about 36 hours into their drive on Sunday night when he hit a sharp bend in a construction zone on Interstate 15 in southern Utah. The twist in the road toppled his trailer and sent the bees into a frenzy.
