LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Kimberly Carwile was waiting for her ride when she scratched the Frogger ticket from the Virginia Lottery she’d just bought. At first, she thought maybe she’d won $100. But then the Lynchburg woman realized she’d actually won a lot more: $150,000.

“I said, ‘It can’t be real!’” she recalled as she later claimed her prize.

It happened at Greenview Stop, 1209 Greenview Drive in Lynchburg.

“It’s unreal,” she said. “This doesn’t happen to me!”

Ms. Carwile said she plans to take care of her family with her winnings and maybe buy a new car.
