China bee swarm kills six from stings and car crash

BEIJING -- Three people were stung to death after a truck carrying dozens of beehives overturned in northeast China and three more were killed on the road as they tried to steer clear of the swarm, newspapers said on Thursday. The beehive truck collided with a farm vehicle on Wednesday and overturned near Changchun, the capital of Jilin province, the China Daily said.

Pictures showed thousands of bees swarming around the accident site as workers, wearing protective clothing, cleared the debris. The East Asia Economy and Trade News said three more people were killed hours later when two trucks collided as they tried to avoid the swarm.
