Bees Swarm Turnpike at King of Prussia

They created quite a buzz.

A swarm of bees hit the turnpike interchange at King of Prussia this morning, forcing two lanes of traffic to be reconfigured.

Turnpike officials tell Action News so many bees descended on cars and toll booths in lanes 11 and 12 they were forced to temporarily convert those lanes to remotely monitored EZ-Pass to keep everyone safe.

Several motorists called Action News to say they could barely open their windows to pay their tolls for fear of being stung.

Authorities are still trying to determine the origin of the swarm. (6ABC)
