A semi-truck full of bees tipped over Friday morning, spilling millions of agitated bees onto Interstate 5 north of Seattle.

According to Q13, the driver of the truck was uninjured.

The semi-truck blew a front tire and overturned, Washington State Patrol Troopers said, spilling 448 honey bee hives onto their side on the roadway.

Officials warned removal of the bees could take hours. They also encouraged drivers to roll up their windows and close vents while driving by, as a number of people have reported being stung.
