When police officers of the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived at the scene of a car accident on a highway in the United States, they got more than what they were prepared for.

A pick-up truck collided with a truck on the Interstate 70, about 150 kilometres outside of the city of St Louis.

The accident happened on 20 April at about 7:15 in the morning. While the time might not be of significance, the date sure is. Around the world, marijuana and cannabis are celebrated on 4/20.

At the moment of impact, plastic bags that were on the back of the pick-up truck were strewn across the highway. The plastic bags contained marijuana with a combined weight of 220 kilograms.

Metro reported that troopers responded to a crash in Callaway County and found 500 pounds (220 kilograms) of packaged marijuana scattered around. Luckily, nobody was seriously injured.

The Highway Patrol later tweeted that all the bags were collected at the crash site and that it took more than one patrol car to transport them to the evidence room.

Two men and a woman were injured in the crash. Police told RTE that two men, David Mora Navarro, 34, and 32-year-old Victor Gonzalez Acosta, were charged with felony drug trafficking.
