In a collision between an armored van and a freeway in the United States, money spilled all over the road.

Drivers in southern California slowed to a crawl as they sought banknotes on the side of the road.

After bags of cash fell out of an armoured van in southern California, drivers scrambled to grab cash.

The accident happened in Carlsbad shortly before 9.15 a.m. local time on Friday, as the vehicle was traveling from San Diego to a FDIC office.

“One of the doors popped open and bags of cash fell out,” said California Highway Patrol Sergeant Curtis Martin.

Several bags burst open, spilling money – mostly one-dollar and twenty-dollar bills – across the lanes and halting traffic.

The amount of money stolen was not immediately disclosed by the police.

People were seen laughing while holding wads of cash in a video posted online.

“Have you ever seen this before? What would you do?” Demi Bagby, a bodybuilder, asked on Instagram.

At the scene, two people were arrested.

Sergeant Martin warned that anyone found with the money may face criminal charges.

He mentioned that there was a lot of video taken by onlookers at the scene and that the CHP and FBI were looking into it.

Anyone who had taken money was urged to return it, and at least a dozen people had already done so.

Sergeant Martin said, “People are bringing in a lot.”

“A lot of money was given out.”

Shortly before 11 a.m., the road was reopened.

The Associated Press contributed additional reporting.
