A man who took a convertible car on a motorway test-drive saw €23,000 of his money fly out of an envelope behind him.
The cash - in 500, 200, and 100 € notes - fluttered across the motorway amid speeding traffic near the city of Hanover.
Police closed the motorway in both directions to search for the money, according to the BBC, and recovered all but €3,000.
The public was warned against scavenging along the motorway to search for the missing cash. And that may not be all the driver lost; police may charge him for the cost of the search.Reuse content
