MONROE COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Sheriff's officials in Monroe County say two lanes of Interstate 75 are closed after a truck carrying bees and a load of honey overturned.

Monroe County Sheriff's spokeswoman Allison Selman-Willis says a truck carrying boxes of bees and honey through middle Georgia blew a tire Sunday morning and crashed.

Monroe County Emergency Agency Director Matthew Perry told the Telegraph of Macon authorities worked to move the bee hives and honeycombs to a grassy area alongside the interstate during the cleanup effort, which is expected to last most of the day.
