A Highland man and a southwestern Indiana family each came one number short of winning shares of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot, but they're getting $1 million consolation prizes.

The Hoosier Lottery said Thursday that 34-year-old Larry Chandler of the Lake County town of Highland and Pat Wilkerson of the Knox County town of Bruceville bought tickets that matched the first five numbers in Wednesday's drawing, but missed the Powerball, so each collects $1 million.

Wilkerson shared her winnings with her children, Michelle Cummins and Sean Wilkerson, both of Vincennes. Each received about $333,000 before taxes. Bruceville is located outside Vincennes.

Tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri matched all of the numbers and the Powerball.

The winning numbers were 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and the Powerball, 6.
