Lottery Luck Strikes Twice for Maryland Truck Driver

A Maryland truck driver has won his second lottery in a decade. The 39-year-old—who has remained anonymous—claimed his $2.85 million Multi-Match winnings on Saturday, the Baltimore Sun reports. "It's great to be back," he said. The man apparently pops into stores along his route to buy Multi-Match tickets and knew the Christmas Day drawing had a winner. "I still didn't think much of it until Saturday morning, when I saw that it was sold at the Safeway store," he says.

It was the same Safeway where he bought gas, and a Multi-Match ticket, the week before. "That's when I checked my numbers and realized that I was the winner," he says. The father of two won $250,000 in the Mega Millions game in 2005. That money was put toward a new house. He already has plans for his latest winnings—to pay off that house, take a vacation, and save up for his kids. (This guy claimed his lottery winnings in a bear suit.)
