A food truck crashed into a tree with a beehive in West Hollywood, leaving four people trapped inside the truck as angry bees swarmed the scene.The truck crashed around 12:30 p.m. near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and North Doheny Drive in West Hollywood. Three individuals inside the truck had to be extracted by firefighters and were taken to the hospital in critical condition, according to City News Service, and a fourth was in serious condition.

A sheriff's deputy who responded to the scene was stung by a bee and had to be taken to the hospital after suffering an allergic reaction.

The location of the crash is in the steep hills above the Sunset Strip, and not on the famed thoroughfare itself. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
