Can the phrasal verb "fall over" be used in the following sentence as "come across" something? or to discover something.

1) While I was going through the boxes I fell over some old memories.
2) When I was reading the article I fell over this juicy piece of information.

Is it used in the colloquial language.
Thank You

I have not come across "fall over" as a synonym of "come across," as you use it, Jaybel. In your sentences, "come across" is perfect, but "fall over" doesn't fit.
