CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, IL — A crash involving a tour bus last Friday night, March 31, blocked a section of Interstate 57 near Ludlow, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The accident blocked a span of I-57 in both directions between Exit 250 to Rantoul and Exit 261 to Paxton. It was first recorded by IDOT at 10:04 p.m.
