Truck full of money accidentally spills cash on highway (Photo: Twitter)
Luckiest passersby and unluckiest money transporter? A viral video that is making us say, ‘we wish’ shows a highway in Atalanta littered with cash as an armoured truck carrying cash accidentally had its door flung wide open causing an approximation of Rs 1,19,63,962 (USD 175000) to come flying out, according to the Dunwoody Police Department. The viral video as expected shows passersby parking their vehicles as they rich to pick up the cash, as expected.
Watch the video here:
In a statement released by Dunwoody Police Department, they said, they received a 911 call regarding the incident. "The armored car crew said the side door came open while they were driving and money spilled out onto 285. Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that were still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken."
A post about the bizarre incident, which occurred on Tuesday night, has been shared by Dunwoody Police Department on Facebook.
“Heads up Dunwoody, it’s cloudy with a chance of cash...” they’ve posted on the social networking site. According to the post, officers received calls about the flying money and were told that over 15 vehicles had stopped and several people were rushing to collect the cash.
In their post, Dunwoody Police Department urged people to return the cash they had picked up. “While we certainly understand the temptation, it’s still theft and the money should be returned,” says the post.
Following the plea by the police department urging people to return the money, Twitter has been flooded with jokes and memes and we are also not expecting good Samaritans to show up at the police station.
