Bees swarm Turnpike cars

CHERRY HILL, N.J. — New Jersey Turnpike drivers have to deal with traffic jams, pollution and even the occasional deer.

But motorists driving north of Interchange 3 had a new obstacle on Saturday afternoon as thousands of honeybees swarmed around cars.

Turnpike Authority spokesman Joseph Orlando said the swarms were from a man-made beehive that apparently fell beside northbound lanes in Cherry Hill at about 2 p.m.

The Turnpike Authority was seeking out a beekeeper to deal with the problem.
