Dave Johnson won the $298M NY State Powerball Jackpot

**After winning the $298 million dollar New York Powerball lottery drawing, Dave Johnson has decided he’s not going to go to work as a truck driver anymore. Yes, he’s DONE.

However, it’s because of his work ethic that he won’t have to ever work a day in his life ever again. You see, he wasn’t feeling all that well on Dec 26, but made his way to work, anyway.

The now former truck driver made his regular stop at the Arnold Service Station on Linden Boulevard in East New York to fill up his tank before beginning his route. He says he found a $5 bill in his back pocket, so on a whim, he decided to buy a Powerball ticket, according PIX 11-TV.

Johnson, 56, didn’t think much of it … that is until two days later, when a fellow trucker called him.

“He called me and said ‘Dave somebody won the Powerball at the gas station’ and I turned to him and said ‘nah that’s not me man that’s not my luck,’ Johnson said.

Oh yes it was.  Johnson quickly accepted his new found “luck” realized he was the winner of the $298 million Powerball jackpot.
