PARIS, Tex. (KXII) -- It happened just after ten Monday morning.

A semi carrying up to 30 million bees overturned on southeast Loop 286 near the Old Clarksville Road intersection.

The driver was not injured.

Multiple agencies came out to help redirect traffic from the area and clear the road of the bee boxes that fell from the truck.

Local bee keepers were called in to help move the bees to a safer location and try to redirect the bees back into their hives.
