Bees swarmed a police patrol car in Oklahoma when officers responded to a highway crash this week, and now video footage posted from inside the vehicle has gone viral on the Internet.
Carl Zink of the Garvin County Sheriff's Office posted the video to Facebook on Tuesday, just a few hours after a semi-truck full of honeybees crashed and spilled their hives onto the road.

, Zink received one sting during the onslaught, but was otherwise uninjured.
Exit 72 on Interstate 35 was closed completely by the bee spill, and the highway flow was reduced to one lane.
As evening fell, beekeepers called to the scene to quell the agitated insects reported that they were only becoming more aggressive. They continued gathering as many bees as they could until roughly 7:30 p.m., at which time it was decided the remaining bees would have to be burned.
"Millions, millions of bees. I couldn't give you a number, but millions," said Scott Woods, who said he pulled the driver from the truck. "I got stung on the lip, on the end of the nose, mouth, the side of the eye, and then the back."
