From the News-Press:
The spill caused thousands of honeybees to flock to the intersection to get a sweet taste. Torralvo, also a beekeeper, said the bees were drawn by the smell.
Emergency workers and police from Cape Coral, Lee County Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Department of Transportation and the Florida Highway Patrol swatted the swarming insects as they tried directing traffic and cleaning up the honey.
With the bees landing on the honey residue, thousands were crushed by traffic or sprayed away by firefighters.

The bees hung around for hours getting their honey on, meanwhile local businesses called for beekeepers. No humans were hurt, as honeybees generally couldn't give a fuck about humans, only honey. Just thousands of bees were hurt, as they died doing what they loved, getting honey.
