Drivers were filmed grabbing cash on the side of the road after an armoured truck's side door flew open.
The bizarre scene saw dozens of drivers on a motorway in Dunwoody, Atlanta, US, pulling over and dashing for the cash.
Dunwoody Sergeant Robert Parsons said the authorities believe an estimated $175,000 (£140,000) wound up flying out on the Atlanta interstate on Tuesday night.
He said there were over 15 vehicles pulled over as drivers hopped off their cars and collected the money.
"Officers and the truck crew gathered a few hundred dollars that was still there when officers arrived, but plenty was taken by passerby's sticky fingers.
