A trucker won $50,000 on a run through Maryland earlier this year. 

The 35-year-old truck driver from Lorton, Virginia, who did not disclose his name, bought the winning ticket on October 22nd at a 7 Eleven in Silver Spring, Maryland. 

“Like everybody else, I had been buying Powerball tickets back home as the jackpot kept getting bigger,” he told Maryland Lottery officials. “It just happened that work took me into Maryland that day. A right place, right time kind of thing.”

“I never expected to hit that jackpot, never expected to win much at all. So, $50,000 is a huge surprise and such a blessing,” the Lorton resident said to Patch News.

He said he and his wife are considering spending the winnings on a new car.
