ST. LEONARD, Canada (AP) -- Twelve million honey bees have been released onto Canada's largest highway in northwest New Brunswick after a transport truck overturned.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that a truck carrying 330 crates of bees was traveling on a ramp on the highway when the load shifted and the truck overturned shortly after 1000 GMT.
Police said a downpour of rain has helped to contain the bees in and around the truck.
Bee experts from Agriculture Canada were called in to help deal with the accident.
The driver of the truck was not hurt.
