CHAMPAIGN CO. -- A mysterious truckload kept drivers from taking a rest along I-57 today.

This large object spent the day at the rest stop just north of the Pesotum ramp. State police blocked off the entrance and wouldn't let drivers pull in. Troopers wouldn't say what was behind the white wrapping. All we know is they were in charge of escorting the load which was being carried by Diamond Heavy Haul, Inc. Many people called us today saying it looked like a flying saucer or top secret military plane.
