    A truck driver hauling more than 17 million bees was killed in an accident on Interstate 55, and three southeast Missouri beekeepers were called in to help manage the swarm that escaped after the wreck.

    The accident happened yesterday afternoon. The driver was identified today as Alan Hunter, 37, of Richville, Minn.

    The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the semi sideswiped a bridge guardrail near Scott City, went off the road and overturned in a soybean field. Hunter was pronounced dead at the scene.

    “We think he just fell asleep,” Cpl. Mark Winder said.
