Truck Driver Claims $338 Million Powerball Jackpot


Truck Driver Claims $338 Million Powerball Jackpot According to a Bordertown, New Jersey Love’s Travel Stop manager, a truck driver called at approximately 11:30 p.m. on Sunday night to claim Saturday’s $338 million Powerball jackpot.

“He was excited. He said he won the lottery and asked how he could collect the jackpot,” said Love’s manager Isaiah DeVries.

The truck driver told DeVries that he was currently in Delaware and he wanted to know what he needed to do to claim the jackpot.

DeVries said he was instructing the unnamed truck driver on what to do when the two were disconnected.

“It’s kind of a bummer. I hope he’ll call back,” DeVries told the New York Daily News.

The jackpot is the sixth-highest prize in Powerball history. Only a single winning ticket matched all 6 numbers.

Saturday’s Powerball numbers were  17, 29, 31, 52, 53 and Powerball 31. If the driver chooses to take the lump-sum payout, he’ll take home $221 million after taxes.

Lottery officials have announced the winning lottery ticket was sold at a New Jersey liquor store, but they say the official winner has not yet stepped forward.
