Aug. 15 (UPI) -- A toll plaza in China was swarmed with thousands of bees when the insects escaped from a transport truck.
A video recorded at the toll plaza in Changxing county shows an estimated 30,000 bees swarming the area after escaping from a transport truck.
Police said the bees are believed to have escaped through a small opening in the truck due to high temperatures inside the vehicle or the smell of gas from a nearby gas station.
Authorities said it took about 90 minutes to recapture the bees. Five people, including two firefighters, were treated for stings.
