Rain made of money

Wuerzburg, Germany (dpa) - A man who forgot to remove a sack of money from the top of his car before driving off caused it to rain money over an autobahn in southern Germany.

After stopping at a gas station, a 62-year-old man from Britain forgot to remove a sack filled with thousands of euros from the roof of his car on Christmas Eve, police said Sunday.

The money was dispersed across lanes of traffic, causing several drivers to stop and collect the cash.

Only a small fraction of the money could be recovered, according to the police.
