KINGSTON, Jamaica — A Brooklyn truck driver who is originally from Jamaica was the lone winner of last month’s US$298.3 million Powerball, the second-largest jackpot in New York state history.

According to a report from NBC News, David Johnson, 56, of East New York, accepted his winnings from Yolanda Vega of the New York Lottery Friday at Resorts World Casino in Queens.

Johnson chose quick-pick, and the computer spat out 05, 25, 38, 52 and 67, with Powerball 24.

He chose to take the lump sum, which amounts to US$180 million and US$114 million after taxes.

He said that doesn’t intend to go back to work because he is a rich man now and has plans to take care of his family, buy a red Porsche and “a nice house.”
