Drivers scramble for free weed after drug smuggler wrecks truck

A truck carrying a large quantity of marijuana wrecked in San Jose earlier this week, scattering its cargo across a roadway and creating a feeding frenzy as drivers passing by scrambled to collect as much as possible.

After the wreck, which San Jose police say took place near Oakridge Mall at around1 a.m. on Wednesday, the driver immediately fled.

Once police arrived on the scene, very little marijuana was left. They reportedly found a handgun in the truck.

Authorities are still searching for the suspect and the drivers who took the marijuana, but they admit to having no suspect descriptions.
