LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (AP) - Two drivers involved in a Los Angeles-area car crash each suffered hundreds of bee stings after one of the vehicles hit a tree and disturbed a hive.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Jose Larios says the collision occurred Sunday in suburban La Canada Flintridge.

One of the drivers, a 51-year-old woman, jumped into a backyard swimming pool to escape the swarming insects.

The driver of the other car, a 17-year-old girl, fell to the street where a deputy found her covered in bees. He sprayed her with a fire extinguisher to get the swarm off of her and then they ran to safety.

Both drivers were treated at a hospital. The deputy was also stung, but not hospitalized.

The bee hive was removed by a pest control company.
