Canadian Trucker Hauls in a Big Win

Truck driver Jim Flynn from South Hazelton, British Columbia, claimed a CAD$ 1 million Canada Lotto 649 prize on Wednesday, Septmber 3, 2014, and was remarkably calm and composed about his big win.

"Oh I just bought a ticket and won, that's all I can say. A couple days later I checked my tickets at Chevron and found out that I was a winner—I'll just keep on working!" Flynn said.

Flynn bought his winning ticket from the Chevron gas station in New Hazelton, and he isn’t the first person to secure a big win on one of the gas station's tickets. In November 2012, Terrace resident Bob Erb purchased a ticket that bagged him a Canada Lotto Max Jackpot of CAD$ 25 million.
