Those traveling on Interstate 5 – an important highway on the West Coast of the United States, which connects the border with Mexico with Canada – encountered an unusual situation on Friday afternoon (11/19): a rain of money rain. The event took place in San Diego, California, after the door of a powerful car was opened and banknotes were spread across the track.
A CHP police officer told the San Diego Union-Tribune that anyone who takes the money could face charges. “If a lot of TVs don’t have a highway lane, you can’t just pick up TVs.” According to the officer, a lot of money has already been returned.
The authorities did not disclose the amount that fell from the car or the amount recovered. But they did highlight that they had pictures of people collecting ballot papers. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the CHP gave 48 hours to return the money and avoid potential criminal action. At least two people have already been identified and arrested.
