PARIS, TEXAS — Bees escaped a truck tractor semi trailer after it rolled over on the road Monday morning at Highway 271 and Loop 286.

The Paris Police Department said that roads are open now and debris from the rollover has been removed.

However, the 'latest buzz' is bees are still in the area and will stay there for some time.

A hive has been set up by bee keepers, and they plan to move a queen in to try to attract more back to the hive for removal.

Officers at in the area don't recall ever seeing an accident like this, and fortunately, several of their first responders who were stung are all alright.

If you do have a swarm that attaches to something on your property, call 903-784-6688, option '0'.

Police ask that you don't kill the bees, "they are very important to the ecosystem and humans. If you have someone who is allergic to stings, please be careful in the area of the crash."
