COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say bees are swarming near the Washington-Idaho border after a tractor-trailer full of the buzzing insects tipped over, spilling its load on Sunday.

One eastbound lane of Interstate 90 was closed by the accident near Coeur d’Alene

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://is.gd/PkH1T5 ) the Idaho State Police were advising people to stay clear of the area, which was near the marathon course of the Ironman Coeur d’Alene triathlon.

A similar truck wreck just two days ago released more than 20 million bees on State Highway 33 in the eastern Idaho desert. Those bees were being shipped to North Dakota to pollinate crops and make honey.
