$1,000 of pennies fall on Oklahoma highway

February 25, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
For drivers on a busy Oklahoma highway, there was a chance to find not just one lucky penny- but thousands.

About 40 boxes of pennies fell out of an armored truck in Tulsa. Each box held $25-worth of pennies, which added up to about $1,000.

Troopers said as the truck rounded a curve the boxes shifted, causing the door to open and the pennies to fall out.

Traffic was backed up while troopers cleaned up the mess.
