VIDEO: Oklahoma Officer Trapped on Interstate by Swarming Bees

A semi-truck carrying honeybees overturned on an Oklahoma interstate Tuesday — trapping a sheriff's deputy as thousands of angry, swarming bees blanketed his cruiser.

Miraculously, the state Highway Patrol said, the deputy was stung only once and escaped otherwise unhurt — but not before he recorded terrifying video of the blanket of bees engulfing the vehicle.

Garvin County Sheriff's Deputy Carl Zink was responding to a report of an overturned truck shortly after 1 p.m. (2 p.m. ET) on Interstate 35 near Pauls Valley, about 50 miles south of Oklahoma City, when the bees swarmed his cruiser, the state patrol said.

Gee wiz can we make this sound any more sensationalized then it is? It was bees, he was safe inside the car......just drive off, have some sense, not like they were killer bees from space or something. They were HONEY bees not Africanized killer bees ! I once had to step away from a rattle snake during a death investigation in the desert, wow... I should write a book about the dangers I faced, my life flashed before my eyes! (NOT!) Next thing is the trooper will get a medal of valor and a purple heart for his bee sting. God lets be rational here.
