Look at all of the loose change on the highway. An early Wednesday morning truck crash in central Florida resulted in thousands of dollars worth of nickels being scattered.

A truck apparently rear-ended another truck on Interstate 95 eastbound.

One truck overturned, spilling $187,000 in nickels on the interstate. The coins were headed from Philadelphia to the US Treasury in Miami.

Secret Service and treasury agents went to the area to make sure no one tried to grab the coins.
