Watch: $thousands dumped on motorway

NO one wants to be the first on the scene of road traffic collision – unless it's one like this.

A car spewed thousands of dollars in cash across a US highway yesterday after hitting a barrier and spinning into another car.

The driver of the car carrying the cash was taken to hospital with minor injuries, the Metro reports.

The five, 10 and 20-dollar notes were real and came from video gambling machines, according to authorities.

The interstate highway in Campaign County Illinois was closed while police swept the cash up.
