Trucker wins lottery jackpot

| 3/9/2007

A trucker has won half of a $390 million lottery jackpot.

That lucky man was 52-year-old Ed Nabors of Rocky Face, GA, who says he's going to use part of his winnings to buy some lakefront property and do a lot of fishing.

"We're all very excited for him and very happy for him," a spokesman for Nabors' company, Mohawk Industries, told "Land Line Now" on XM Satellite Radio.

Nabors told reporters he was out on the road when he learned he'd won, and that after he pulled over and sat for 20 minutes, his dispatcher, who'd checked the GPS, called to see if he was OK.

The winners of the "Mega Millions" lottery jackpot were announced Tuesday, March 6.
