Fatal Crash Litters I-95 With Thousands of Nickels

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that a tractor-trailer carrying $182,000 in nickels headed for Miami was involved in a fatal crash with another big rig. Some of the coins were scattered across a section I-95 near Mims. The drivers of both trucks are in stable condition, but a passenger in the second truck died on the scene.
