SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah – At least two people were injured after a semi-truck hauling over 200 beehives turned over in Utah on Monday.
According to the Park City Fire District, crews have been on the scene of a semi-truck that rolled over, carrying hundreds of beehives. Two people have been transported to a hospital with multiple bee stings and other minor injuries.
“Every effort is being made to save as many bees as possible,” said PCFD.
According to KSL-TV, the Historic Union Pacific Rail Trail has been closed in the area due to all the bees and crews have also minimized traffic in the area. Crews expect it take a few hours to clear the scene.
The cause of the crash has not been released, according to KSL-TV.
