Money rains down after bags fall off armored truck

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — It was raining money in Providence after three bags of cash fell off an armored truck and a car drove over them, bursting two of the bags open.

The Providence Journal reports that it happened Wednesday, when the Brink’s armored truck was pulling into the main entrance of Rhode Island Hospital.

A Brink’s representative told police that the back door popped open and the bags spilled out. After another car ran them over, the wind picked up the bills and the money started flying.

The Brink’s crew tried to catch the flying bills but weren’t able to get them all. The newspaper reports they were missing more than $20,000.

Brink’s told police that its own security team is investigating how the truck’s door popped open.
