Nearly $300,000 Missing After Armored Truck Spills $510,000 on New Jersey Highway

Police say more than half a million dollars spilled from an armored truck onto a New Jersey highway, and nearly $300,000 remains missing a day later.

East Rutherford police said Friday that two bags of cash fell from a Brink's truck near MetLife Stadium on Thursday. One had $140,000. The other carried $370,000.

Police say the bags fell from an open rear door that had a mechanical issue.

The swirling cash led drivers to stop their vehicles and hop out on the highway to gather the money. There were two car crashes as a result.

Police say Brink's workers and other motorists recovered about $205,000 from the roadway. Five people turned in about another $11,000.

About $294,000 is still missing. Police ask anyone with video of the frenzy to contact them.
