BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Montana Highway Patrol says a truck carrying a load of beehives from Minnesota to California crashed in south-central Montana, spilling the hives and wrecking the truck. The driver was not injured.
Trooper Jerry Perman tells The Billings Gazette the crash happened at about 10 p.m. Monday on Interstate 94 just east of Pompeys Pillar.
The wrecking company asked that a beekeeper be called to the scene. Perman said he didn’t think stinging bees would be a problem, given the freezing weather.
