Fifteen million bees threatened with homelessness in Sweet Home

A truck with 480 colonies of bees on the annual pollination run to the almond orchards of California overturned near Sweet Home on Highway 20 in the Golden State. Local residents were relieved that most bees seemed to remain around the overturned vehicle, circling their former homes. The driver sustained serious leg injuries and has been charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants and careless driving. Local beekeepers came to help restore a semblance of order the following day.
