It sometimes happens that the moments you act on impulse and follow your gut feeling could be the best moments. This rang true for a lucky truck driver from Rocky Mount in North Carolina. He has found himself $10 million richer after he stopped off for coffee on his way home from work and bought himself an international lottery ticket.
This amazing win happened a couple of months after a syndicate of truck drivers from New York State won the Powerball lottery. The winner in this story is David Harris, and he is an army veteran who’s lived in Rocky Mount for nearly his whole life. David said he was driving home from his shift as a truck driver on the 29th of April at 1 am in the morning. He was feeling sleepy so he decided to stop off at an EP Mart to get coffee and a few scratch cards. “I felt lucky that morning, so I bought me one and I was scratching, I didn’t have any matching numbers, so I saw the dollar icon, and I knew I had won something,” explained David.
After scratching his ticket, he saw a number ten, and then the sign for a million. “I was smoking a cigarette, my mouth just flew right open,” explained David after he realised he had become a millionaire. He went home as soon as he could to tell his 24-year-old son the great news.
David’s son heard his father pacing around the room on the other side of the door trying to process the win. “I heard him moving around so I knocked on his door and asked him what was up. He told me he won 10 million Dollars. Of course, I thought he was just joking with him. I told him to stop lying,” said David’s son. It took a while for David to convince his son that he was telling the truth. After the family got over the shock, they started dreaming about how they would spend their international lottery winnings.
David Harris works as a truck driver for Walmart and Sam’s Club. He said that he will carry on working for the time being seeing that he’s only 53. He has plans to buy himself a new truck and take his son on a vacation. “I want to go to Hawaii, and just do nothing,” David told lottery officials.
