#powerball Bus driver drives away with $1 million Powerball prize

April 13th, 2016

A Metro Transit bus driver can now officially park in retirement after winning a $1 million Powerball prize.

Joseph Woods of St. Paul, MN has been working as a part-time bus driver since he retired as a full-time driver in 2007. However, after winning $1 million in Saturday’s Powerball drawing, Woods is now able to officially retire.

Woods called his employer the morning of April 11 to share the news. “I told them, ‘I’m not coming in anymore. I just won $1 million!’ I think that was a good enough explanation.”

His next stop was Lottery headquarters in Roseville to collect the prize.

Woods says he’s looking forward to having more time to “enjoy the same things I've been doing!”

He purchased the winning ticket at M & H Gas, located at 721 Arcade St. in St. Paul, MN.
