Armored truck drops money on I-75
Police say a crash involving an armored truck that dumped several money bags on I-75 in Clayton County appears accidental.
The crash occurred on I-75 southbound near the Mount Zion Road exit in Morrow shortly after noon on Sunday
A silver Acura was driving south when it struck the back of a Brinks armored truck, Clayton County Police spokeswoman GlenNeta Griffin said.
The crash caused the Brinks truck to spin out of control and hit a cement wall on the interstate, Griffin said.
Police closed all southbound lanes while they cleared the wreckage, including several money bags that fell out of the Brinks truck.
“Three money bags fell out and officers were out there guarding the money,” Griffin said. “The officers stayed there until another Brinks truck could get there and pick them up.”
Nothing was taken in the crash, police said.
Police are still investigating, but will likely not file any charges, Griffin said.
“It looks like an accident,” she said.
Paramedics rushed the Brinks’ driver and another employee to Atlanta Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, Griffin said. The driver of the Acura was taken to Southern Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
Their names were not available Sunday.
