Ah, the power of the bee! A swarm of bees surrounded a work van and brought traffic to a standstill in Manhattan Friday. (Like traffic actually moves there on a normal day??)

The bees swarmed a Service Master van causing police to close down the entire block to vehicle traffic and restrict pedestrian traffic. It took a beekeeper several hours to clear the bees from the truck.

Raw video of the ordeal is below the news video from ABC-7.
