HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown man is celebrating a million-dollar win in the Maryland State Lottery.

Lottery officials say Ronald Ashby, 62, claimed the $1 million prize Friday on a $20 Black scratch-off ticket.

Ashby recently retired from Allegheny Power. He says he plans to remodel his house and take a vacation with some of the winnings.

Lottery officials say Ashby bought the ticket at a Food Lion grocery store on College Road in Hagerstown.

They say there is another $1 million top prize remaining in the Black ticket game.
