Did one person win the Powerball?
No, there was not one single person who won the Powerball. The Powerball is a multi-state lottery game, and the winner is determined by a drawing of five white balls from a drum of 69 balls, plus one red Powerball from a drum of 26 balls.
All of the balls are numbered, and the winning combination is randomly selected. The winner needs to have all five of the white balls and the red Powerball drawn to win the grand prize.

Most of the time, the grand prize is split among multiple winners.
