Thousands of Bees Swarm Motorists on New Jersey Turnpike

Drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike have to cope every day with traffic jams, pollution and even the occasional deer.

They ran into a new obstacle Saturday as thousands of honeybees swarmed around their vehicles.

Turnpike Authority spokesman Joseph Orlando said the swarm came from a beekeeper's beehive that apparently fell beside the highway in Cherry Hill.

The Turnpike Authority was looking for its own beekeeper to deal with the problem.
