May 19 (UPI) -- A Virginia woman said helping out a friend turned out to be a lucky good deed when she won $250,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Monica Crivaro, of Culpeper, told Virginia Lottery officials she had been waiting for a friend who needed a ride, and she decided to pass the time at the Sheetz store in Ruckersville.
Crivaro purchased a Cash King scratch-off ticket from the store and won the $250,000 top prize.
"It doesn't seem real," the winner said.
Crivaro said she hasn't yet decided what to do with her winnings.
