Lincoln County lottery winner announced
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Lincoln County man won a $1 million prize in Wednesday's Powerball drawing, West Virginia Lottery officials announced Friday.
Terry Brumfield, 65, of Harts, bought his ticket at the Little General store on McClellan Highway in Harts.
Brumfield said at a Friday morning news conference that he knew he had won on Wednesday night, but just went to bed with the ticket in his pocket.
"When I woke up my wife asked if I had bought any tickets at the Little General and if I had checked mine. I said yes and yes. She then said well the news says that someone won a million dollars. That's when I said to her -- yes, me," Brumfield said, according to a release from the Lottery.
Brumfield works as a contractor with his brother, and said he planned to keep working - in fact, he said he was headed to work when he left the Lottery on Friday morning.
He's the sixth person in West Virginia to win $1 million or more this year from the Powerball or Mega Millions games, and the 52nd since 1986, state Lottery officials said.
