Drivers were bombarded by flying cash on the busy perimeter highway of Atlanta after a door swung open on an armored truck.
WSB Radio reports that a flood of cold hard cash flying on a highway led a dozen or more drivers on I-285 in Ashford-Dunwoody to pull over.
A video shows people stopping in traffic and jumping out of their vehicles to scoop up the bills. Surprisingly, no one has been injured. The opportunists drove away with the cash by the time police came.
Dunwoody Police Sgt. Robert Parsons informed the radio station that it was definitely a crime to take the cash off the highway. They are looking into exactly how much cash is missing.
Parsons claims they need to turn that money back into the police.
