Witness: 20,000 bees take over car

According the Department of Agriculture, bee populations have been dying at a rate that is "economically unsustainable."

Yet you wouldn't know it from the stories crossing the wires.

On Tuesday night, a tractor-trailer carrying live bees overturned in Delaware, forcing the closure of an entire off ramp due to transient bee swarms in the area.

Then, in Canada, a massive bee hive was found inside a home. Tens of thousands of bees needed to be removed from the hive by an experienced beekeeper.

And in England, 20,000 bees swarmed a car, covering the tires, doors and windows.

What do you do in a situation like that?

CNN's Brianna Keilar talks to the young man who experienced it first-hand, Rory Edwards.
