Retired trucker wins $666,000 in Georgia lottery


A retired truck driver is more than half a million dollars richer after buying a winning lottery ticket, and now he plans to relocate.

Fayetteville, Georgia resident Bradley Payne claimed half of a Georgia Lottery prize recently. He and a second winner matched all five numbers in the June 4 Fantasy 5 drawing, splitting the $1.3 million jackpot prize into a $666,595 win for each.

The 63-year-old veteran and retired truck driver said he will use his winnings to pay some bills and relocate to St. Petersburg, Florida.

Payne said that he was running errands when he stopped and purchased the ticket.
