GREENWICH, N.Y. - Patricia Wesner says she was astonished when the armored truck hit a bump and a plastic bag full of money and a box fell onto the road in eastern New York.
She tells the Glens Falls Post-Star that bills started blowing out of the bag as the truck drove off, its guards unaware they'd lost part of their load at about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on a Washington County road.
Wesner, who lives in Greenwich, stopped to gather up the bills and called 911.
State police tracked down the Brinks truck later in the morning and turned over about $11,000 in singles and coins.
Troopers say Brinks believes a lock problem might have caused one of the doors to open, but Wesner thinks the money fell off the rear bumper.
