A semitruck rolled early Friday morning, spilling a load of honeybees on the Interstate 5 median at the Interstate 405 interchange near Lynnwood.

Beekeepers were at the crash site within an hour to attempt round up the honeybees, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

Our news partner, the Seattle Times, reports that as temperatures warmed and the bees became agitated, firefighters sprayed a mixture of foam and water on the hives that hadn’t been recovered by the beekeepers, said Sgt. Ben Lewis of the State Patrol.
