Indiana Bus Driver Gets First Ticket

A bus driver from Mishawaka, Indiana, is the first person to claim one of the six $100,000 prizes from the Hoosier Lottery's $500 Frenzy Scratch-off game.

Michelle Hunt, who drives for Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, is delighted by the unexpected win.

"It is something that you dream about for years and years," she said.

Over 500 players have managed to scratch their way to a $500 prize, but Hunt is the only person who has managed to get the top prize, so the other five winning cards are still in circulation.

Hunt now intends to set up a college fund for her grandchildren and is looking forward to being able to contribute something to charity.
