ATLANTA - Weird things have spilled on Atlanta interstates before — foam tomahawks, produce and a whole mess of livestock, to name a few — but no spill has been as lucrative as the one on I-285 Tuesday evening.

An armored truck was driving in the westbound lanes of the interstate when a side door flew open, spilling its contents onto the interstate. Cash was all over the road, according to one driver who called in to WSB AM.

"I saw a bunch of paper floating around in the road and everybody pulling over on the shoulder, and as I got closer I noticed it was all just cash," the driver said.

Typically, a spill on an interstate would stop traffic for a few hours. This time, drivers stopped willingly. Video uploaded to Reddit showed at least half a dozen cars stopped on the shoulder as drivers grabbed at the flying bills.

In Natchez MS they are filming a Movie.

In one scene last week some Robbers are throwing $100 Bills out the Window of their Car.

People stopped and picked up the FAKE Money. The Police had to issue a warning about trying to pass the FAKE Money.

Someone already tried to up in Vicksburg.

Yeah, those folks will turn in the REAL Money they picked up. Probably the same day that U.S. Women’s Soccer Team is caught wearing MAGA Hats.

Someone needs to review the definition of "armored."

I’m sure that’s why they picked it up in the first place.

I’m surprised that no one was hit and injured by passing traffic; thanks for that, at least.
