In San Diego, banknotes rain on the highway


Motorists on Interstate 5 in San Diego County had a pleasant surprise this Friday, November 19 at 9 a.m. when the door of a CIT truck suddenly opened and wads of banknotes flew up in the middle of the highway.

A video shared on social networks by demibagby, a sports coach, shows the highway completely covered in banknotes. Taking the opportunity, several drivers left their vehicles to try to collect as many tickets as possible.

The main road is at a standstill and dozens of cars and trucks have parked on the tracks, their occupants squeezing between the vehicles to retrieve handfuls of bills ranging from one to twenty dollars.

The jubilation scene was not really to the liking of the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the state traffic police. Upon arriving at the scene, officers arrested two people. If finding oneself in a shower of banknotes is a miracle, recovering them remains illegal.

“If you stop to collect money, as many people filmed the scene, you risk prosecution” explained to the San Diego Union-Tribune a California Highway Patrol agent.

For those who could not resist the greed, the police “Highly recommend” to return his liquid to the CHP within 48 hours in order to avoid being the subject of prosecution. The FBI is working on the case and has, according to police, recovered a number of license plates and faces. According to the police, a dozen people have already come to give their money.
