A bank bag that burst open on Interstate 40 near Meridian Avenue in Oklahoma City caused quite a traffic jam Monday when drivers abandoned their vehicles and began grabbing wads of cash.
About 2:45 p.m., vehicles were stopped in both directions of Interstate 40 at Meridian Avenue, and people were running up the embankment trying to grab the bills, Shawn Altebaumer said.
“Man, it was nuts. It was a free for all,” he said. “There was literally money flying. People would pick it up, tuck it and just run.”
Authorities said no one has claimed the money yet as of Tuesday. Altebaumer said a single $20 bill and four $2,000 bundle wrappers were all they were able to recover.
