A family holding a winning $1 million lottery ticket took no chances while traveling from Utah to cash it in at the lottery office in Idaho. Sisters Cindy Flint and Carol Olsen, along with their mother kept it locked in a fireproof safe on the 300-mile drive from Brigham City, Utah to Boise, Idaho. Cindy Flint says she even slept with the safe when they stopped for the night at a motel. They successfully cashed-in the ticket on Monday by going to the lottery office with the safe in tow.
