Truck full of bees crashes, kills 1 and closes I-35

At least one person is dead after a semi-truck hauling bees was involved in a crash on the northbound side of I-35 in Lakeville. Another person was injured and taken to the hospital.

But that's not the end of it: apparently the swarm of angry bees is making the recovery effort difficult. Firefighters are trying to keep the bees under control by blasting them with a fire-hose.

KSTP and WCCO have aerial video of the crash site, which shows hives smashed and strewn across the highway.
