Northern Turkey had very heavy rain recently and one beekeeper wasn't so lucky as the small truck he was driving overturned and spilled his hives. The images tell the story.
It seems like he was not injured in the accident.

I guess he is trying to clear the road of bees so that they don't sting other motorists and cause more problems.

Probably trying to clear some if the spilt fuel from the van before the cleanup team arrive.
