Drivers stop on highway to grab cash from armored car

It was just another day in New Jersey this morning when an armored truck spilled money over the highway in East Rutherford.

People risked being hit by cars to pick up a few dollars.

Authorities were seeking videos of the incident, to track down both those who possibly stole cash and people involved in the accidents, WABC reported.

Meanwhile, in New Zealand, someone left money under the windshield wipers of cars parked at a campground and on toilets in the campground.

Figuring it might be stolen money, campers turned it over to police.

    So, your kid is late for school, you or someone you are driving for is late to a doctor’s appointment you scheduled months ago, or you miss a sales call, or you miss your flight, or someone can’t get to the emergency room because of the nuckleheads on the freeway picking up money.

    • Well, yeah…

      Just like there are some roads that you avoid in the Twin Cities if you really need to get somewhere at a particular time, there are roads like that in northern New Jersey. I think Route 3 is one of those roads. Especially the area around MetLife Stadium. (Visible in the background of the video.)

    New Zealand residents turned the money over to police, like that would ever happen here in the good old US of A

    How does that quote from the movie Men In Black go? “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it . . . . ” This story proves the writers of that movie were on to something.
