GREENVILLE, South Carolina (AP):

State troopers say the door of an armoured van flew open on Interstate 85 near Greenville, sending a cloud of cash towards rush-hour drivers.

Highway Patrol Cpl Bill Rhyne said drivers reported the cash spill in the north-bound lanes of I-85 just north of I-385 around 8 a.m. yesterday.

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 are 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 armoured van company, Loomis, didn't respond to an email seeking comment.
