Motorists in Grand Haven, Michigan couldn't believe their luck this week as they scrambled to pick up the cash.
Police officers became aware of the unexpected money grab on Thursday when they responded to a traffic problem on Route 31 and found that several people had abandoned their cars at the side of the road in an effort to gather up as much of the escaped bank notes as they possibly could.
It turned out that the owner of the money had inadvertently left a box containing $30,000 on the bumper of his truck, resulting in it being strewn across the highway as he drove along.
The local police department has put out an appeal asking members of the public to return the cash.
While some of those who collected the notes have since come clean and handed in what they'd found, others have failed to come forward and so far only $7,000 has been returned to the owner.
Among those who did hand in some of the money were two 17-year-olds who returned $630 and a woman who had managed to gather up a whopping $4,000.
As things stand however, there is a still a long way to go.
