Wreck on Trans-Canada Highway spills $5 million in coins, candy

| 3/30/2012

A Brinks truck carrying millions of dollars in Canadian coins crashed into a rock along the Trans-Canada Highway in northwestern Ontario Wednesday, March 28.

The highway was reportedly closed so a contractor with magnets could recover the lost loot, The Vancouver Sun reported. Two people inside the truck suffered critical injuries.

Not long after the 4 a.m. wreck, the Sun reported a chain of collisions, including a truck carrying candy. Like the cash, the candy also was strewn along the highway.
