Truck Driver Wesley Davis, Sr. claims his $50,000 Bonus Match 5 prize.
Uses Family Birthday to Pick Winning Numbers
Wesley Davis, Sr. stopped by Lottery Headquarters today carrying one of his lightest cargos in years. The truck driver, who normally transports refrigerated truckloads of fruits and vegetables to grocery stores up and down the east coast, brought with him only a small slip of paper – a Bonus Match 5 ticket. That ticket delivered a lucky $50,000 win on Monday night.
The 56-year-old resident of Baltimore’s Lucille Park neighborhood is a regular Lottery player, a fan of all the games (although Bonus Match 5 is his current favorite). His big win has his mind going a million miles a minute. “I got zero sleep last night,” he told officials. Mr. Davis plans to pay bills and begin looking for a new car. His Lottery luck found him at the 7-11 convenience store at 5129 Reisterstown Road in Baltimore.
