Winning Powerball ticket bought in small Mo. town
DEARBORN, Mo. (AP) -- It's likely that the purchase of the multimillion Powerball ticket is the biggest thing to happen in a long time in the northwest Missouri town where the lucky ticket was sold.
Missouri Lottery officials said Thursday that someone bought the ticket at a Trex Mart convenience store in Dearborn, a town of about 500 people. It sits about 35 miles north of Kansas City, mostly in Platte County, with a small sliver in Buchanan County.
Lottery officials were gathering Thursday morning at the Trex Mart to help handle what was expected to be a flood of media into the small town.
The winner, or winners, in Missouri will split the record $587.5 million jackpot with another winner in Arizona.
