Los Angeles Sheriff Deputy Saves Three From Thousands of Stinging Bees

Three people were critically injured and a sheriff’s deputy badly stung after a catering truck lost control and jumped a curb, hitting a tree that triggered a swarm of bees.
City News Service reports that the catering truck was driving downhill above the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, when the driver lost control hitting the tree and a street pole.
A sheriff’s deputy tried to help three injured people trapped in the wrecked truck; then surrounded by thousands of angry bees.
The deputy suffered an allergic reaction and was rushed to the hospital, where he was treated and released.
A fire spokeswoman says the three people were extricated in critical condition and taken to trauma centers.
