Ohio drivers stop to scoop up cash spilled on the road




 

Warren County, Ohio, drivers got a bit of an early Christmas bonus on Tuesday after pulling over and grabbing money that spilled out onto Interstate 71, according to reports.

ABC station WHIO reported that the chaotic scene happened at about 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday, and drivers were seen pulling over, getting out of their vehicles and grabbing currency from the interstate.

Dispatchers from the Warren County Sheriff's Office told deputies in the field that there were reports of money on the highway near I-71 and SR-48.

State Police also responded to the scene to assist because traffic was snarled due to the cash grab.

WHIO said it was not known how the money ended up on the interstate, but county dispatchers said they received reports of a backpack of cash getting thrown from a vehicle.
