Route 3 in East Rutherford is a very busy stretch of highway. It's where Route 17, the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike all come together. There are major hotels, office buildings and Met Life Stadium. At 8:30 on a weekday morning there's a lot of volume. That's exactly when the rear door of a Brinks Truck opened and spilled 20's, 50's and 100's on to the highway.
What would you do if those large bills appeared on the highway in front of you? Several people stopped and tried to grab the money. Which caused several car accidents. Some people took out their phones and took video of the money blowing across the highway.
Now here's the bad news for people who risked their lives for some of that cash. The money legally belongs to Brinks. East Rutherford Police are reviewing the videos on You Tube trying to identify folks who were grabbing the money. Those people will be in trouble if they don't turn the money in. You can watch one of those videos below. One woman did return some money that got stuck in her windshield.
Here's my advice to anyone who stopped and picked up some cash. Bring back most of the money to the police. Just keep one or two 20's or 50's for yourself as a reward for being honest. Who would know?
