    Feb. 24 (UPI) — A Maryland woman said she turned misfortune into monetary fortune when she used the license plate number from her wrecked car to win a $25,000 lottery prize.

    The Columbia woman told Maryland Lottery officials she decided to try the new Pick 5 game on Valentine’s Day and she bought a 50-cent ticket using the numbers from the license plate of her car, which recently had to be towed from the scene of a minor crash.
