FOND du LAC, Wis (WSAU) The place where the state’s biggest lottery winners buy their tickets had a run of bad luck yesterday. A driver crashed through a set of doors at Ma-and-Pa’s convenience store on Main Street in Fond du Lac. Owner Mike Forsyth said a woman’s accelerator got stuck – but nobody got hurt, and the only major damage was to the doors themselves.
He said somebody walked through the doors just moments before – and another customer was using a nearby copy machine when the car hit them both.
Believe it or not, Forsyth said it was the third time that Ma-and-Pa’s was hit by a vehicle. So it’s no surprise that they simply boarded up the damage and went back to work.
Some of Wisconsin’s biggest lottery jackpots have been claimed by those buying tickets on Fond du Lac’s Miracle Mile over the years. And Ma-and-Pa’s is the capital of that community, selling millions in winners. Players who buy scratch-off tickets there can get detailed explanations of the available games before they buy.
