Money topples from armored car into traffic

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - October 7, 2010

Police say three bundles of money fell off the back of an armored car Wednesday near an intersection in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. A car hit one of the bundles and sent bills blowing into the breeze.

Witnesses tell The Indianapolis Star about 10 people stormed through traffic into the intersection to fill their arms with cash.

Two others stopped to help collect the money and guard it until police and the armored car company arrived.

It's not immediately known how much money went missing, but a local television station says most of the blown cash was recovered.
