FORSYTH, Ga. -- A tractor-trailer tire blowout created a sticky situation Sunday morning on Interstate 75 southbound in Monroe County.

According to The Telegraph newspaper in Macon, the truck was carrying bee hives, said Allison Selman-Willis, public information officer for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Two lanes of traffic were closed for several hours so the broken boxes containing the hives and honey combs could be moved to the grass alongside the interstate, said Monroe County Emergency Agency Director Matthew Perry.

“That was a sticky mess,” Perry said.
