SAN ANTONIO – Swarms of bees were dispersed in the downtown area after an 18-wheeler that was hauling them rolled over at the Finesilver Curve near downtown, according to San Antonio police. The incident happened just before 11 a. m. , Sunday morning on the I-10 West offramp to Eastbound I-35.

Another truck that was hauling the bee boxes was involved in the incident, but it did not flip, according to officials. The rollover was caused by a combination of speed, wind and the driver being unfamiliar with the sharp curve, police said. Some of the bees escaped the truck; however, those that remained at the scene were killed after being sprayed by firefighters. The cost in damages is at least $90,000, authorities said.
