MULVANE, Kan. (AP) Some drivers got a surprise windfall when a malfunctioning toll machine spat out coins instead of accepting money near a Kansas casino.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Kansas Turnpike Authority spokeswoman Rachel Bell says the agency learned Tuesday morning about the problem with the machine at the Mulvane exit.
The agency inadvertently divulged details about the mishap when it sent a text alert to its public subscribers. The note said there was NO WAY to know the exact dollar amount that was taken.
