Cocaine car crash after winning millions
Callie Rogers became Britain’s youngest lottery winner when she won £1.9 million in 2003. The 16-year-old from Cumbria gave up her job checking £3.60 an hour and started spending his money.
Within a month, Callie, who was in care after leaving home when her biological parents split, also bought a £180,000 bungalow and a £76,000 home for her mother.
Finally she blow thousands on wild parties, three profligate jobs and drugs, plus around £300,000 on designer clothes.
“That’s too much money for someone so young,” she told Closer Magazine.
“Even if you say your life won’t change, it still does and often doesn’t get better.”
She later described the victory as a “curse” that made her think of suicide.
“I took paracetamol and sleeping pills. Luckily, my family found me and took me to the hospital,” she said.
Eighteen years after her victory, Callie was discovered to have declared General credit last month after blowing her fortune. The revelation came during a court hearing after she was involved in a car crash while using cocaine last December.
