Wife of furloughed federal worker wins $100,000 in Virginia lottery

Carrie Walls picked up her check and the keys to her new SUV on Friday in Sterling, Virginia.

Carrie Walls of Ashburn won the top prize in the Virginia Lottery’s Ford Expedition Plus $100K promotion. Her ticket was drawn out of 554,000 entries in the December 4 drawing, the lottery said.

According to the lottery, she said the $100,000 is timely because her husband is a federal worker furloughed in the federal government shutdown, which has lasted 21 days as of Friday.

“I cried. I couldn’t believe it,” she said about realizing she’d won the top prize.

She picked up the check and SUV on Friday. She said she was already planning to take her family to Disney World.
