Video After The Jump
CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Drivers scrambled to grab cash Friday morning after bags of money fell out of an armored truck on a Southern California freeway, authorities said.
The incident occurred shortly before 9:15 a.m. on Interstate 5 in Carlsbad as the truck was heading from San Diego to an office of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
“One of the doors popped open & bags of cash fell out,” California Highway Patrol Sgt. Curtis Martin said.
Several bags broke open, spreading money — mainly $1 & $20 bills — all over the lanes & bringing the freeway to a chaotic halt, Martin said.
Video posted online showed some people laughing & leaping as they held wads of cash.
Two people were arrested at the scene & Martin warned that any others who are found to have taken the money could face criminal charges. He noted there was plenty of video taken by bystanders at the scene & that the CHP & FBI were investigating.
Anyone who took money was urged to bring it to the CHP office in Vista.
Authorities didn’t immediately say how much money was lost. However, at least a dozen people had returned money they collected to the CHP by Friday afternoon.
“People are bringing in a lot,” Martin said. “People got a lot of money.”
The freeway was reopened shortly before 11 a.m.
