On-Star Winner Gets Her Truck!

It has leather interior, it's red and is worth $40,000. What is it? A free truck!

Katherine Schmidt of Gilmer won the brand new custom Avalanche in the GM On-star car give away.  Tuesday, she drove away in her prize.

She won the prize last January at Peter's Chevrolet in Longview. Katherine says she feels lucky because she really needed a new vehicle.

"I was driving an old Honda civic and it was well over a 100,000 miles on it so I was ready to retire. I got to pick out the color, the inside and outside and so they actually built the vehicle for me," says Katherine.

Katherine says back in January her friend had to talk her into playing the game.   She says she didn't think she could possibly win.
