LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — There may be a newly-minted millionaire in the San Fernando Valley.
A Mega Millions ticket matching five of the numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing – but missing the Mega number – was sold at Jerry’s Liquor, 11010 Saticoy St. in Sun Valley. And even though it didn’t match all six numbers in the Mega Millions drawing, it’s still worth $2,694,898, according to the California Lottery.READ MORE: Woman Killed in Fiery Single-Vehicle Crash in Long Beach
