An armored van crash in Michigan spilled part of the vehicle's $1 million in coins and currency onto the road Tuesday after the driver lost control on on icy road.

Owned by Loomis armored transport, the van was headed northbound on Saginaw Road early Tuesday morning when it skidded into the southbound lane. There, it struck an SUV before spinning 180 degrees to a stop in a nearby parking lot, Genesee County Sheriff Sgt. Pete Stocchi told MLive.com.

An unknown amount of the armored van's payload emptied onto the shoulder of the roadway and parking lot.

The driver of the SUV and a Loomis employee in the rear of the van were treated at a local hospital. They are listed in stable condition; the van driver sustained minor injuries, MLive reported.

Stocchi said the accident is under investigation, and no tickets were issued.

Loomis sent employees to assist in retrieving the money.

Though this appears to be nothing more than a traffic incident, Loomis Fargo & Co. was the victim of a $17.3 million heist in Charlotte, N.C., in 1997, the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time. Most of the money was recovered.
