NM woman waits months to collect $50K prize

LAS CRUCES (KRQE) – A New Mexico woman who won $50,000 in lottery says she waited three months to claim her prize because she was afraid to drive to Albuquerque alone.

Sylvia Jimenez hit the big jackpot playing a $5 scratcher game she bought in Las Cruces back in February.

She waited until she could catch a ride with family to Albuquerque before claiming it.

She says she’ll buy a new truck with her winnings.
