RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — Swarms of bees invaded a Haven Avenue intersection for 18 hours Sunday night and Monday after a commercial truck carrying boxes of bee hives collided with another vehicle.

Employees with the West Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District spent Monday morning cleaning up crates and honey — and trapping the bees — left over from Sunday night's head-on collision.
