Carrie Walls stopped by Koons Sterling Ford in Sterling today to pick up her new Expedition and a check for $100,000.
On Dec. 4, her lottery ticket was the one, out of more than 554,000, drawn as the top prize winner in Virginia Lottery’s Ford Expedition Plus $100K Promotion.
“I cried. I couldn’t believe it,” the U.S. Air Force veteran told Lottery representatives about the moment she discovered she’d won the drawing. She also said the cash prize was especially timely because her husband has been furloughed as part of the federal government shutdown.
Walls, who entered her non-winning tickets in to the second chance drawing portion of the promotion, was the third top prize winner. Two others won with scratch-off tickets. One final top prize remains unclaimed.
