At least, that’s what one driver in Ashland told police after his car literally rolled over on Winter Street Friday morning. Somehow, the driver escaped unscathed.

While his story may seem far-fetched, there’s no getting around the fact that a creature who flies and stabs is one of the most terrifying things imaginable.
Being in confined space with that creature? Yikes.
Being in a confined space with that creature while also trying to operate what amounts to a two ton missile with an engine? Forget about it.
The driver in this incident cannot be blamed for losing his cool – any reasonable person would have been just as panicked. In fact, we should probably commend this man. He pulled a barrel roll in his BMW in the hopes of avoiding a bee, and probably killed it in the process. That kind of stupid, unintentional bravery deserves a medal.
