Authorities say emergency responders were stung several times when a flatbed truck carrying honeybees rolled over in rural Nevada.

Officials say 66-year-old truck driver Rudy Breneman had been hauling a load of bees from Bruce, S.D., to California when he pulled to the side of the highway east of Tonopah Monday afternoon.

Breneman told troopers the big rig started sinking into the soft dirt of the shoulder and eventually tipped over and broke open many of the hives.

Troopers say firefighters tried to contain the bees with water before bee keepers responded to the scene.

Breneman wasn't injured in the accident and is not being cited.  (AP)
