A US man has lost $5,000 after driving off with the money on top of his car.
The father of two, known as Jason, of Albuquerque, New Mexico has described the mistake as the "bonehead move of the year".
When asked what he thought about the error, he told local station KRQE-TV: "Bonehead move of the year. I was loading my children in the car and I put the money on the roof and drove off with it.
"Part of it was for [the] mortgage, but the rest [we were to spend] doing a remodel on the house."
Jason searched for the missing money, but it is yet to be found.
