North Carolina trucker plans business expansion after $1 million lottery win

A truck driver from Morrisville, North Carolina, has hit the jackpot, winning a $1 million prize from a scratch-off lottery ticket, which he plans to use to grow his trucking business.

The backdrop: William Roberts encountered his stroke of luck while enjoying his morning coffee, purchasing the winning ticket from a Circle K on Davis Drive in Morrisville.

Cash or annuity? Faced with the choice of annual payments of $50,000 over 20 years or a one-time lump sum, Roberts went with the lump sum of $600,000, ultimately pocketing $429,014 after taxes.

The future of the road: Roberts intends to reinvest the "unbelievable" win into his trucking operation, aiming to expand his fleet with more trucks.
