“Woman wins $10 million by accident”
When a stranger bumps into you, you might get an apology. LaQuedra Edwards got $10 million.
Edwards had just put $40 into a lottery ticket vending machine at a supermarket in Los Angeles when “some rude person” bumped into her, causing her to accidentally push the wrong number on the machine.
She usually purchases cheaper tickets, but the accidental button push meant she’d bought a $30 ticket.
Edwards said she was annoyed because she had just put most of her money on a single ticket.
But once she was in her car, she started scratching the ticket, and realized she’d won the top prize of $10 million.
Edwards said she is going to use her winnings to buy a house and start a charity.
