Witnesses say a 17-year-old driver involved in the accident was stung at least 100 times.
"She looked like she got stung in the face a bunch of times and it was all swollen," one witness recalled.
He says she was panicking when he arrived at the scene.
He used the spray from a garden hose to scare the bees away.
Police say a 51-year-old woman was stung at least 500 times.
