Girl Crashes Her SUV into Nature, Bees Unhappy

This image was lost some time after publication.

We once almost crashed our car due to an errant yellowjacket that stung us as we took off from a stoplight, but that's nothing compared to what a sixteen-year-old girl in Indiana had to contend with when she lost control of her SUV on a gravel road and wrapped it around a tree. But not just any tree. A tree that happened to have many, many bees in it. And not happy, benign bees, but bees angry that some impetuous human would assault the location of their hive with a few tons of steel.

Jacqueline Cossairt was stuck in the wreck with a couple of broken legs as rescue workers attempted to free her and bees attempted to punish her. Frankly, the whole thing just sounds really terrifying to us. Think about it; two busted legs and a swarm of angry bees all up your steez? That definitely goes beyond the realm of the merely unpleasant. [Thanks to Thnderblt for the tip.]
