A portion of an Illinois highway had to be shut down on Tuesday after a car crash dumped wads of cash all over the road.
Illinois State Police say the driver of a Ford sedan lost control of his car, slammed into a guardrail, then struck another vehicle and ended up on the grass median. The man was transporting video gambling machines for the company he works for, and they all opened up and spilled piles of five-, 10- and 20-dollar bills. Police closed off the area for about an hour while crews worked to pick up the loot. It's not known of all of it was recovered.
Luckily there were only minor injuries reported. The driver was cited for driving too fast for the road conditions. (The News-Gazette)
