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.
