Ohio Woman Killed After Celebrating Lottery Win

SANDUSKY, Ohio (Jan. 27) – Authorities say a woman who had been out celebrating her lottery winnings at a north-central Ohio bar was killed when she was struck by a car.

Deborah McDonald appears on the Ohio lottery show “Cash Explosion Double Play” on Jan. 12. She died Tuesday after being hit by a car.

The Ohio Highway Patrol says 47-year-old Deborah McDonald of Crystal Rock had just left the bar near Sandusky on Tuesday night and was hit as she was walking along a road.

An Ohio Lottery spokeswoman says McDonald won $8,000 in the lottery’s TV game show “Cash Explosion Double Play.”

The show was taped Jan. 12 and is set to air at the end of the month.

Bar patrons say McDonald was with a group that had been celebrating her winnings and playing pool.

Patrol Sgt. Joe Wentworth says police are looking into whether alcohol was a factor, but they don’t think the driver of the car was drinking.

A THOUGHT: If you win the lottery, I guess it’s better to lock yourself in a room and just toss the money up in the air while you jump on the bed – it’s safer!

Wasn’t there a song that said something like, “…won the lottery, died the next day…”?
