Millions of escaped bees shut down highway
数百万蜜蜂逃逸 高速公路封闭

(Reuters) - A flatbed truck carrying hundreds of beehives overturned near a construction zone on a Utah highway, freeing millions of bees and forcing authorities to temporarily close Interstate 15, officials said on Monday.
路透社:一辆装载着数百个蜂箱的平板卡车在犹他州一临近施工地区的高速公路上翻车,导致数以百万计的蜜蜂飞出,迫使当局暂时关闭了15号州际公路,当地官员周一表示。

Bees: The truck which overturned was carrying hundreds of hives

"The driver lost control, hit the concrete barrier and rolled over. Of course, we then had bees everywhere," said Corporal Todd Johnson with the Utah Highway Patrol.
“司机突然失控,撞上了水泥墩子,然后车翻了。于是就到处都是蜜蜂了。”犹他州高速公路巡警Todd Johnson如是说。

The highway in southern Utah was shut down for several hours on Sunday evening and Monday morning, officials said.
官员称这条位于犹他州南部的高速公路被迫在周日晚间以及周一早上关闭了若干小时。

Local beekeepers worked through the night to gather the escaped bees. Officials said there was a net over the beehives but bees still managed to escape after the truck overturned.
当地峰农则花了整晚的时间收集逃走的蜜蜂。官员称虽然蜂箱上有网子,但在车祸后这些蜜蜂还是挣脱了出去。

The truck driver and two law enforcement officers responding to the accident were stung by bees but the stings were not life-threatening, Johnson said.
卡车司机和两名负责现场执法人员被蜜蜂蛰到,但据巡警Johnson说伤势并不严重。

"There were about 450 colonies on the load and probably about 45,000 bees to the colony," said Richard Adee with Adee Honey Farms in Bruce, South Dakota.
“车上一共有450个蜂箱,每个应该有45000只蜜蜂。”南达科塔州Adee蜂蜜农场的Richard Adee在接受采访时说。

That would translate to more than 20 million bees.
也就是说共有2000万左右的蜜蜂。

Adee said the bees were headed to Bakersfield, California for almond pollination next spring.
Adee说这些蜜蜂本来是要送往加州的贝克斯菲尔德的,为的是在明年能为杏子授粉。

"We stacked the equipment back together, put them back on trucks and trailers and whatever we could find to move them out of there," said beekeeper Melvin Taylor of Santa Clara, Utah.
“我们已经将设备堆放在了一起,并装上了卡车、拖车以及任何车辆以尽快离开现场。”犹他州圣克拉拉市的蜂农Melvin Taylor这样说。

"Then we tried to move them as far out of the metropolitan area as we could. Because when those bees come alive today they are going to be mad that their house is all (broken) apart," Taylor added.
“然后我们会尽快将它们运出市区,因为这些蜜蜂今天就会醒来,到时候看到蜂巢都没了肯定会暴怒的。”Taylor补充说。

Taylor said bees not gathered and removed likely perished in the accident and cleanup.
Taylor那些被没抓获以及运走的蜜蜂很可能已经在事故和后续清理过程中丧生了。
