Truck full of bees crashes in Turkey, all hell breaks loose

Car crashes are some of the worst things that can even happen to a person. But being involved in a car crash then being assaulted by a few hive-fulls of bees is certainly even worse. Just ask the survivors and rescue team which engaged in an accident yesterday in Turkey, when large van carrying multiple beehives crashed into a truck which was stationing on the side of the road.

Needless to say, the impact broke almost all of the hives and the angry bees started messing with almost anyone around, be them survivors or rescue teams. This forced authorities, to summon multiple beekeepers from the area to help them eliminate the bees. They, together with firemen and other rescuers used hoses, blankets and even rags to chase off the bees. It took them almost an hour to help all of the victims.

In total, about 20 people needed hospital care, with six of them being injured from the crash and the rest being workers who were attacked by the bees. One person involved in the accident has died, but it isn’t clear if the bees aggravated his situation. The same thing happened in 2006, when another truck carrying beehives crashed in Turkey.

Here is a video, of the rescue attempt from the crash site, showing just how hard the whole operation was.

    What a horrible thing! My heart goes out to those crash victims. They have been hurt because of the accident and what is worse is that they also experienced to get stung by the bees. What is sad is that somebody died.
