A truck carrying thousands of honeybees has overturned on an Oklahoma road, setting swarms of the insects loose along the highway.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the accident on Interstate 35, near Pauls Valley, happened on Tuesday afternoon.

The patrol added that there was an injury, but gave no other information on the accident.

TV images showed a swarm of bees covering part of a highway patrol cruiser. The patrol said the road is now clear, and authorities cautioned drivers to be aware of the bees.
