Numerous motorists caused a traffic jam this Friday on Interstate 5 near the town of Carlsbad (California, EE.UU.) when stopping to pick up money dropped from a cash truck, local media reported.
The incident occurred in the morning, when one of the doors of the armored vehicle was accidentally opened and several bags of cash were dropped, causing a large quantity of banknotes to be scattered all over the road.
The athlete Demi Bagby, who witnessed the event, shared a video on her social networks in which several people are seen collecting money while traffic in the direction of the city of San Diego remained paralyzed.
Moments later, journalist Melissa Adan tweeted photos taken at the scene and specified that not a single banknote had been left on the ground, except for the bank paper bands that held the bundles.
In turn, the California Highway Patrol recalled that appropriating that money is illegal and urged everyone involved to return it.
They also reported on the arrest of two suspects and claimed to be investigating together with the FBI the recordings with the faces and patents of the motorists who had stopped at the scene.
At the moment, the amount that the securities truck lost has not transpired.
