GREENVILLE Money may not fall from trees, but it flew from an armored van when a door flew open on Interstate 85 near Greenville, sending a cloud of cash toward rush-hour drivers.
Highway Patrol Cpl. Bill Rhyne said drivers reported the cash spill in the northbound lanes of I-85 just north of I-385 around 8 a.m. Monday. Rhyne says troopers assisted in controlling traffic while the money was cleaned up and no wrecks were caused by the flying cash.
Greenville County deputies say all the money has been picked up, but drivers were still stopping on the side of the road to look for loose bills.
Rhyne says in 21 years as a trooper, he has never heard of anything like this. The armored van company Loomis didn’t respond to an email seeking comment.
