MAHOMET, Ill. (WAND) - Money on the highway caused major traffic backups on Interstate 74 Tuesday.

The crash involved a Ford Escape and a pick up truck. Bills were then scattered across the highway. 

Luckily there were only minor injuries reported from the crash. 

Traffic was blocked for nearly an hour. The eastbound lanes have since re-opened. 

It's not yet clear what caused the crash.
