Drivers Scramble For Spilled Cash On Highway

Motorists driving along a busy highway in the US couldn’t believe their eyes when thousands of dollars of cash began raining down right in front of them.

The remarkable scene unfolded on an Atlanta highway on Tuesday morning as about US$175,000 (£140,000) blew out of an armoured truck when its side door accidentally opened, local news station WSB-TV reported.

Footage shot by passers-by shows dozens of people scrambling to pick up handfuls of notes from several lanes before jumping back in their vehicles.
