Imagine being in one of those cash grab machines. But this time, there a lot of other people and you’re on the highway in rush hour traffic. That was the scene Friday on I-270 in Frederick County.
According to CBS Baltimore, a malfunction on the GardaWorld Security Company armored truck lead the cash to splash all over the highway.
Drivers were quick to spot the situation, and pulled over in search of a taste of life in the fast lane. By the time emergency lights chased people away, only $220 remained on the pavement.
Not everyone proved to be a greedy grabber, however. According to State Police, one woman turned in $1,100 after the incident. Her reward? Getting dubbed a Good Samaritan by state police:
We appreciate the good samaritan who turned some of the money found on I-270 back into the Frederick Barrack. Thank you for your honesty.
