CBS Sacramento reports the crash happened around 7 p. Thursday night along Interstate Police said traffic quickly backed up and the driver had to ditch the freeway, which caused the fatal accident for the honey bees. Boxes of beehives were crushed and the driver was sent to the hospital.
The Auburn Fire Department was forced to drown the honey, which created a dangerous situation for the public. Miller said he'd seen this happen before and there were no other options. These bees freeway destined to do some pollination work next spring, fruits, vegetables, nuts.
It's a tragedy, it's sad," he said. If the crash were to have happened during the day, Miller says there might have been a better chance for survival.
The mess ultimately took hours to clean up.
