BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Greensburg woman won $10,000 on a lottery ticket she nearly threw away.

Joyce Womack, 41, says she put the ticket in the trash, but pulled it out when she realized she hadn't checked the numbers.

The ticket matched four of the five white numbers and the Powerball number.

Womack says she plans to pay bills and put the rest of her winnings in the bank.
