Two patrol vehicles were swarmed after a big-rig carrying many thousands of bees overturned on an Oklahoma interstate Tuesday afternoon, making for remarkable photos and video captured by a deputy inside one of the vehicles.

Carl Zink of the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office posted this photo of bees swarming an SUV after a big-rig carrying honey bees overturned on Sept. 29, 2015.

The crash was reported about 12:45 p.m. on Interstate 35 in Pauls Valley, about 50 miles south of Oklahoma City, according to KTLA sister station KFOR.

“Bees are loose along the interstate,” the Oklahoma Highway Patrol wrote on Twitter.

Deputy Carl Zink of the Garvin County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene and saw his patrol vehicle swarmed. He posted video and photos of the strange sight on Facebook.

He received only one sting, the Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.Screen Shot 2015-09-29 at 1.42.54 PM
