Angry bees swarm on police after a motorist hits their hive
A WOMAN and two police officers were treated for multiple stings after a pursuit ended with a car crashing into a hive of angry bees.
Goondiwindi police were trying to locate a woman for a health check yesterday.
When they found the woman, she failed to stop.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the officers deployed a spike trap to deflate the woman's tyres.
After crossing the trap, the woman left the road and hit a tree, near the intersection of Kildonan and Johnston Rd, shortly before 5pm.
The tree was home to a hive of bees enraged by the drama unfolding below.
Two police officers and the woman were stung multiple times.
Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics were called to treat the woman for a neck injury.
She was later transported, stable, to the Goondiwindi Hospital.
The paramedics also treated the officers for bee stings.
