Drivers in Atlanta had a real-life case of “would you or would you not” on Tuesday after an armored truck accidentally spilled out thousands of dollars on the highway.
The incident happened on I-285 as drivers saw money flying out of the sky after an armored truck door opened on the highway and thousands of dollars started flying out. Commuters immediately pulled over to pick up some of the quick handfuls of cash and luckily, no accidents were reported.
According to officers, the area was pretty much cleaned up by the time they arrived at the scene. Authorities say around $175,000 spilled from the back of the truck.
“911 callers said that 15+ vehicles had stopped and people were frantically taking the money,” cops explained in a statement Wednesday. “Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken by passerby’s sticky fingers. The exact amount is currently unknown.”
Some drivers actually turned the money back in on Wednesday — feeling guilty.
“So, believe it or not, some people have been returning the money,” cops said in another statement. “We understand it was a bizarre occurrence, but do the right thing and return the money.”
