Pictures from the scene showed the insects crawling all over the deputy's Dodge Charger.
It happened along U.S. Highway 64 at Exit 425 where a truck carrying bee hives apparently broke down.
A bee keeper from North Carolina State University was called in to use smoke to try and corral the insects and encourage them to return to their hive.
