Detroit auto workers hold one of two winning Powerball tickets

TOLEDO, OHIO (WKOW) -- It's been a volatile time for the nation's auto workers, but one group employed at a Michigan Chrysler plant don't have to worry about their financial security.

Fourteen auto workers chipped in for Powerball tickets and they have one of two winning tickets from last week's $96.9 million Powerball lottery.   One of the workers is from Ohio and he bought the ticket at a carryout near Toledo.  All of the other workers are from Detroit.

The winners work together in the paint shop at a Detroit Chrysler plant that makes the Dodge Viper.  Each of the 14 will get a lump sum payment of $1.2 million.

They claimed their prize Tuesday in Toledo. 

The other winning ticket for the drawing was sold in Montana.
