A Brinks armored truck that drove along I-20 in North Texas bound for Abilene spilled a “substantial” amount of cash from an open rear door, halting traffic as drivers abandoned their cars in a bid for the free money, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
“I thought it was the zombie apocalypse or something, and then it began to look like an Easter egg hunt,” Joel Aldridge told the Star-Telegram.
Aldridge posted video of the unbelievable scenario to Facebook, which shows him driving slowly by what appears to be a chaotic traffic jam on the right side of the highway on Friday.
“Cash all over the highway,” Aldridge wrote. “I thought this was a wreck on the exit to Home Depot in Weatherford but look at everyone’s hands they are picking up wads of cash.”
Police said they only recovered a small amount of the money, which was strewn over a seven-mile stretch of the interstate.
