She may already be a winner: A woman buying a lottery ticket at a Chicago convenience store came within inches of being crushed by a pickup truck that crashed into the store.

The Ford pickup hit two other cars in the intersection Friday before crashing through the front of the Farmers Food Basket, pinning the woman — who was buying lottery tickets from a machine — up against the wall, ABC station WLS-TV in Chicago reported. She escaped with minor injuries, WLS-TV reported.

The woman had been standing where the pickup truck landed just a second before, witnesses said.

The woman wasn’t the only one Lady Luck smiled on. The store manager also would have been right in the truck’s path, but but he stepped away from his normal position a few minutes earlier to help a customer.

The woman went to St. Bernard Hospital with minor injuries.
