Millions of people purchase lottery tickets with the hopes of one day winning lots of cash. James Wright of Henderson, North Carolina has the same dream so he bought a Virginia Lottery Cash 5 ticket while across the border in Bracey, Virginia.
Wright placed the lottery ticket in his glove compartment and totally forgot about it. In fact, he didn’t even think about the ticket again until he found it while cleaning out his truck three months later.
It’s a good thing he did because that ticket was a winner! Wright checked the numbers and found he’d won $100,000 in the November 12 drawing. Now he and his wife plan to use their winnings to pay bills and make home improvements.
