A Fort Campbell soldier died Sunday night after running onto a federal highway in Tennessee and getting hit by three cars.
In a telephone call with his girlfriend, the soldier, whose name has not been released, said he was being chased.
Cheatham County Sheriff Mike Breedlove told USA Today the aggressors in the incident were bees.
Breedlove added that the 21-year-old soldier was walking home from a party either "very intoxicated, or on drugs."
The soldier tried to break into a landscaping company when something fell on him.
The man's girlfriend called 911 to report that he was being chased, according to the sheriff.
After the call, the man ran onto U.S. 41A and three cars hit him.
He got into a beehive. That's what our investigation shows, that it's bees that were chasing him and stinging him.
Authorities have not yet released the results of the toxicology report.
