California woman wins $10 million lottery after pressing wrong button on machine while buying ticket after ‘rude person’ bumped into her

Bestinau got that-

  • A California woman won millions after pressing the wrong button on a lottery machine.

  • LaQuedra Edwards accidentally bought the wrong ticket after a stranger bumped into her.

  • Edwards said she was “in shock” after realizing she had won $10 million.

A California Lottery player won millions after “a rude person” bumped into her, causing her to press the wrong button on a vending machine for “a ticket she had no intention of buying,” officials said.

LaQuedra Edwards was at a Los Angeles County grocery store last November when she put $40 into a Lottery Scratchers machine, the California Lottery said in a press release.

Edwards was hit by a stranger, causing her to accidentally select a $30 200X Scratchers ticket, leaving her “annoyed,” the press release said. When Edwards returned to her car, she started scratching the ticket and realized she had won $10 million.

“I didn’t really believe it at first, but I got on highway 405 and kept looking down (the ticket), and I almost crashed my car,” Edwards said in the press release. “I stopped, looked at it over and over, scanned it with my (California Lottery mobile) app, and I kept thinking this isn’t right.”

The press release said Edwards plans to start a nonprofit and buy a house with her newfound fortune.

“I’m still in shock. All I remember when I found out how much I just won was, ‘I’m rich!'” Edwards added, according to the press release.

The grocery store where she bought her ticket received a $500,000 bonus, officials said.
