Lottery Win Sends St. Paul Bus Driver Into Retirement
ST. PAUL (AP) - A St. Paul bus driver has quit his job after hitting it big in the Powerball lottery game.
Metro Transit driver Joseph Woods says his $1 million winnings are enough to go from semi-retired to really retired. Woods called Metro Transit even before he collected his prize Monday to tell them he wasn't coming in anymore because he had struck it rich.
Woods bought his ticket at the M&H station on Arcade, which is apparently a pretty lucky spot. An Oakdale couple won a $61 million Powerball jackpot there in 1999.
