Bystanders Grab Spilled Marijuana From San Jose Truck Wreck

SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — San Jose police are looking for pedestrians and motorists who grabbed bags of marijuana that spilled onto the road from a truck that crashed.

Police say the bystanders swooped in and grabbed most of the pot after the driver of the truck ran away from the accident early Wednesday morning.

When officers arrived, they found a few remaining bags of marijuana and a loaded handgun inside the truck.

KCBS’ Matt Bigler Reports:

Police said they are also looking for the truck’s driver, who was carrying the marijuana illegally. Neither the driver nor the people who took the marijuana have been identified.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

    yo unknown, what the hell are you babbling about? oh wait, why am i asking you? its painfully obvious you havent a clue.

  • I Wonder

    Or maybe there weren’t all that many bags to begin with and they are trying to make it out to be bigger than it was. Often times “witnesses” will say “30 people started grabbing stuff” when in reality there were maybe 10. Because if there were only 10 people, it wouldn’t be that interesting……
