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.
