On Tuesday Afternoon an Illinois highway was littered...with money!An busy Illinois interstate turned into a highway to riches for a short while earlier this afternoon. Illinois Interstate 74 at near milepost 176 near Mahomet has US currency spilled all over it. Mahomet is located southeast of Bloomington.


Did anyone get their hands on any of the free cash? Quite doubtful as police were on the scene pick up the cash.

According to WCIA TV, no word on who lost the cash and no word of injuries at this time. In the video, a  severely damaged vehicle can be seen along with a large dufflebag crammed with cash.
