KNIGHTDALE -- It started as a routine stop to help a disabled tractor-trailer Tuesday morning on the Smithfield Road exit off U.S. 64.
But when Brandon Jenkins, a Wake master deputy, arrived to help, about 50,000 honeybees were swarming the stalled vehicle.
"About 60 or so boxes of bees had fallen off the truck," said sheriff's spokeswoman Phyllis Stephens.
