Money on the road – level 3

25-11-2021 07:00

Drivers in Southern California, USA, scrambled to grab cash after bags of money fell out of an armored vehicle on a highway.

Several bags opened after one of the vehicle’s doors popped open, spreading mostly one and twenty-dollar bills all over the lanes. People stopped in the lanes, completely blocked them, and grabbed the cash, bringing the highway to a sudden stop. The incident happened on Friday morning, and traffic came to a standstill for two hours.

A California Highway Patrol (CHP) spokesperson said that they were working with the FBI, and they suggested that the people return the cash to the CHP office immediately because they were going to find these people.

Difficult words: scramble (to move or climb quickly and with difficulty), lane (a space in the road for a car to drive), standstill (a situation with no movement or activity).
