Truck driver wins $1 million on scratch-off lottery ticket

A simple trip to run a few errands paid off in a big way for a trucker from Preston, Georgia.

Timothy Dukes stopped into Double D Fast Food on Felder Street in American, Georgia when decided to buy a $10 lottery scratch-off ticket.

When he scratched off the 50X The Money scratcher, Dukes was shocked to discover he had won a top prize of $1 million.

“I was sweating,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Dukes said that he plans to share his winnings with his family.
