    The winner of this week's "Hoosier Millionaire" game show died after being hit by a pickup truck just hours after the show's taping, authorities said Friday.

    Carl D. Atwood, 73, won $57,000 on Thursday during a taping of the television game show in Indianapolis, Hoosier Lottery Director Jack Ross said.

    After the two-hour taping, which will air tonight, Atwood returned to his hometown of Elwood with the check, Ross said.

    About 7 p.m., Atwood was crossing Main Street a block from his home -- on his way to the grocery store where he had bought the ticket that got him on the show -- when a black pickup rounded a corner and struck him, said Elwood Police Chief Toby R. Barker.

    My whiny, naggy mother in law should read this. Maybe now she will shut up about her constant need of having to win the damned lottery... it could happen to her too if she wins... after all, it was won on a 13th week... think about it! :cof:
