WALT: Fluency - read accurately, with expression and understand what we read.
Fluency: Money truck crashes
An armoured truck overturned on a highway in Rhode Island, USA, causing bags of money to spill all over the road which quickly caught the attention of other drivers.
Police say the driver lost control and the truck swerved off the highway onto the grass and tipped onto its side. Both the driver and the other person in the truck received cuts and bruises and possibly neck and back injuries.
The money was in clear plastic bags and canvas duffel bags and the scene of the accident was soon swarming with passersby but police are unsure whether any money was taken.
A second truck was called and the money was transferred as police supervised and kept passersby away from the scene
