East Texas Woman Wins Car

An East Texas woman has become one of just 1,000 people nationwide to win a new car, just by pushing a button.

Gilmer resident Katherine Schmidt, planned on spending her day off Monday shopping for a new truck at Peter's Chevrolet in Longview. But while taking part in a contest put on by Onstar and General Motors, Katherine learned she was the big winner.

"She said 'Could you hold just a minute', I said 'Yes'. She came on again and said 'Are you still holding?', I said 'Yes'. She came on again and said 'Are you sitting down?' I said 'Yes' and she said 'Because you're a winner!' and I said 'Oh my god I won, I won."

Schmidt is the principal at Union Hill High School and says she can't wait to get behind the wheel of her new truck.

If you'd like to try your chances at winning a new ride you've still got time. The contest goes on until the end of February, just check with your local GM dealership.
