Three S. Georgians win Mustangs

August 16, 2005

Moultrie - Laura Peacock owns the Patio Subs and Salads shop in Moultrie.

Everyday she buys about $20 worth of lottery tickets from the convenience store next door. On Tuesday, one of those tickets was a winner. She won a 2005 Mustang Convertible.

"I've been looking for six months for a new car and I wouldn't buy one, because I couldn't find a yellow Mustang that I wanted and so now somebody else is paying for a yellow Mustang," Peakcock said.

After the interview with WALB, she closed up shop for the day and went to claim her prize at the Lotto office in Thomasville.

Tammy Hydrick of Albany, also won a Mustang playing the same lotto game. Hydrick says, at first, she didn't believe she really won.

"It was, 'I can't believe it' type thing," she said. "I thought you put your ticket into a pot and maybe they draw your name and whenever I called the lottery place, they said, 'nope. You won a car!'"

Hydrick says she plans to give her current car to husband, WALB NEWS 10's Sports Director Robert Hydrick.

Only ten winning tickets are available in the entire state. A winning ticket was also sold in Cairo.
