MATTOON -- Imagine paying off your student debt in one day. It happened for one lucky guy.

Kyle Ingram won $1 million from a scratch off lottery game. The 25-year old is a pharmacy student. He says he plans to pay off all his college debt and get a new car.

Ingram and his wife were waiting to have kids, but he says, now that they have some extra cash, it might happen a whole lot sooner. Ingram is taking a one-time payment. After taxes, he'll get about $420,000.
