California auto accident leads to attack by bees

In the event of an auto accident, there is always the chance that one or more of the drivers or passengers will be injured. Since every incident is unique, there is no way of saying for sure what the end result will be.

A recent two car accident in La Canada Flintridge led to a crazy scene in which the two drivers were stung by more than 600 bees.

According to reports, at least one of the vehicles collided with a tree on Los Amigos Street at approximately 3 p.m. As a result, a bee hive was dislodged from the tree and thousands of bees made their way into the air.

Three people were stung by the bees, including the two drivers as well as a deputy who came to the scene to assist.

Witnesses noted that the younger of the two drivers, a 17-year-old female, was stung more than 100 times. The other driver, a 51-year-old woman, was stung as many as 500 times.

The deputy who arrived at the scene used a fire extinguisher to remove the bees from the younger driver. The older woman ran to a swimming pool nearby and jumped in.

This is a unique situation that is not typically the result of an auto accident. However, it does show just how serious any type of accident can be. In this event, the drivers likely did not expect to be attacked by bees after a car accident.

Anybody who suffers a personal injury due to the negligence of a third party can consult with an attorney.
