A Car Crash Scattered 2 Barrels Full Of Weed Across A California Highway

Published on

If you ever wished for marijuana to just fall off the back of a truck, your dreams just came true.

A pickup truck driving along the I‑10 in Banning, California lost an expensive load on Thursday. After reportedly slamming into a transport truck and colliding with the highway’s central divider, the pickup allegedly dumped two large barrels of marijuana” across the interstate, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver — who was likely carrying an illicit shipment of pot — took off on foot after his vehicle was rendered un-drivable. The man has not yet been identified and police are still looking for him.

And despite the purportedly large amount of cannabis that was spilled on to the highway, police say they couldn’t collect enough to act as evidence since most of it had washed away in the rain.
