There’s a vehicle accident in Las Vegas news, but it is anything from the typical accident we write about. For starters, this accident is in Cranston, Rhode Island – not a big contributor to discussions and content on our blog in general. The second thing making this unusual is the type of vehicle involved: an armored bank truck, or “bread truck” as it’s referred to generally by those looking to rob it. No, that’s not what happened here, but by the end there was a little of that flavor to it.
Not to keep you in suspense too much longer, here’s what happened: the armored truck, carrying a load of money, tipped over and spilled bags and bags of currency. The area of the accident was quickly overrun by passers by, though police and other emergency services have not yet definitively said that any money was actually taken. Money being taken at all became a possibility seemingly because the driver lost control of the vehicle. The armored vehicle swerved, left the freeway, and tumbled over on its left side and came to a stop in the grass. Bags of money flew out of the vehicle, adding to the greenery. Both white canvass bags and clear plastic ones containing money were tossed from the vehicle, which predictably brought a number of people hustling that way.
Truthfully, we can’t remember seeing an armored truck accident in Las Vegas in quite some time. It’s been years, we believe, since we’ve written about one (probably been longer since we’ve brought you Las Vegas news from Rhode Island. And while different in those respects, anyone injured in this accident would be in a legal and personal situation like many commercial vehicle accidents we see in Las Vegas all the time.
