SANDUSKY, OH (WTOL) - After striking it rich on "Cash Explosion," an Ohio woman is dead.

Deborah McDonald, 47,  was walking home from a bar in the town of Crystal Rock, where she lives, when she was hit by a car.

She had just picked up a check for $5,520 on Tuesday, then died later that same day.

McDonald had already spent some of the money treating her husband and friends to dinner. She also bought wedding rings for her and her husband. They were unable to afford them when they wed.
