Jan. 11 (UPI) -- A Florida police department shared video of an unusual rescue resulting from a car crashing into beehives and being swarmed by angry insects.

The North Port Police Department said the vehicle left the road and crashed through several of a beekeeper's box hives before crashing into a tree.

"This caused huge issues with getting to the vehicle, as there were thousands of bees swarming the area," the department wrote in a Facebook post.

The two people inside the car were rescued after firefighters from the Charlotte County and North Port Fire Departments used high-pressure foam spray to clear the bees away from the vehicle.
