The video below shows police stopping traffic to pick up money on the interstate.

A chaotic scene took place in IN on Wednesday morning when bags of cash flew out the back of a Brinks truck on Interstate 70. Although initial reports said around $600,000 was scattered on the road, final reports said that the actual amount was not known, according to Fox 59 News.

Drivers on an IN were IN for quite a shock Wednesday morning as a Brinks truck lost hundreds of thousands of dollars when the doors to the truck swung open while traveling down the road. Money bags, money bundles, and loose bills totaling $600,000 fell out of the truck.

Officials aren't sure if a mechanical failure or human error is responsible for the door opening. A school bus driver is one of four people state troopers are looking for who allegedly made off with "bags of money".

The company said the planned sale would be part of Nokia's shift to become a business-to-business and licensing company. That move comes as competition amps up at the intersection of smartwatches and health, particularly from Apple.

"I guess it's not every day you see thousands of dollars just floating around on the interstate during your morning commute", McCooe said.

McCooe said taking money from the scene is considered theft.

However, anyone who took money can be charged with theft if they don't contact state police and return it, Perrine said.

Watching hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash fly across the freeway is a sight many can only dream of - but those who turned that into a reality yesterday are now being urged to give the money back. Anyone who wishes to do the same, can call Indiana State Police at 317-899-8577.
