Cash flies from back of armored car

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Motorists and passersby took to an Indianapolis street to retrieve money that spilled onto the road from the back of an armored car, officials said.

Indianapolis police said they do not know what caused the armored car to drop bundles of cash on the street at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday in the city's downtown. There have been no official estimates on how much cash was originally in the vehicle and how much was lost, the Indianapolis Star reported Thursday.

Police credited Timothy Wentworth, 53, and his wife, Viki, for calling 911 and helping to secure the money in their van until police arrived.

"People were having a field day when I pulled up," Timothy Wentworth said. 'At first I didn't know what it was but when I saw it was cash I figured I better call police."

He said officers told him about $20,000 was lost during the incident.
