A truck carrying millions of bees overturned, causing bees to swarm the Delaware Highway.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, "As many as 20 million swarming bees released after a tractor-trailer hauling them overturned near Newark Tuesday have shut down a highway ramp and kept investigators from getting near the vehicle, said , who urged drivers to stay away from the area."
As many as 20 million bees were let loose to sting nearby residents.
According to the Houston Chronicle, "The tractor-trailer fell on its side about 6:10 p.m. on a curve on a ramp from Route 896 to Interstate 95, said state police spokesman Sgt. . The rig, traveling from Florida to Maine, carried 460 crated hives, or an estimated 16 million to 20 million honeybees."
Safety officials have expressed concerns because you can't round up bees like you do cattle.

Since when are HONEY bees KILLER bees?? Do you really think they'd be transporting KILLER bees in a truck down I95?
They are dying off incredibly quick and we just offed 20 million of them.
Also if you're going to tell me that there is no difference between Killer Bees and Honey Bees then forget it.

Killer bees, huh? Africanized bees? No. Honey bees. You know, the ones that only sting when you step on them or they get trapped in your pant leg.
"Set loose to sting nearby residents"?
So they had instructions to sting the residents?
Your ignorance is obvious in every paragraph of this piece.
