Crash ends with cash scattered across Illinois highway

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WSVN) — Here’s something you don’t see every day: a highway covered in cash!

Illinois State Troopers closed I-74 for about an hour so they could scoop up spilled money from the roadway, after a car carrying video gambling machines lost control and crashed.

The driver hit a guard rail before spinning into another car, while a third vehicle attempting to avoid the crash drove into a ditch.

The accident sent $20s, $5s and $1s from the machine flying across the highway.

Police said all of the drivers involved in the crash are expected to be OK.
