A courier truck dropped canceled personal and business checks on northbound Central Expressway near Woodall Rodgers Freeway around 4 a.m.  The incident closed the freeway exit until 7 a.m.  Employees from the Federal Reserve, the courier company and the Texas Department of Transportation removed many checks, though some disappeared.  Some unaffiliated people also returned checks to the authorities.  A very similar incident happened in August of 2005.
