In a bizarre incident, money rained on a highway in New Jersey, United States after an armoured truck crashed and spilled loads of money bills. The incident led to several crashes as the commuters stopped the vehicles abruptly to grab the cash.
The incident happened near Metlife Stadium, near New York City.
According to ABC news, the truck was driving through Route 3 in East Rutherford in the peak hours of Thursday morning when it crashed and spilled money on the busy highway.
In a video going viral on social media, people can be seen rushing out of their cars to pick cash lying on the highway.
The amount spilled is still unaccounted, as quoted by ABC news.
The case is now being probed by police detectives. Authories said that the act of pocketing cash will considered a theft. They are tying to track people who were involved in both, "stealing" and causing accidents through videos posted on social media.
East Rutherford police Detective Lieutenant Mike Gianscaspro told ABC, "It's theft of mislaid property... so we're not looking to charge anybody, we're just looking to get the money back to Brinks."
Detectives are still investigating the incident based on the visuals gathered on social media.
