Talk about an emotional roller coaster, a North Carolina man was having a bad day after hitting two deer with his new car, that quickly changed when he discovered that he won 2 million dollars from Mega Millions.
According to Channel 11 News, Anthony Dowe of Leland, North Carolina started out bad when he struck two deer on his way to work. This caused him to forget work for the day and go home and go back to bed. After he awoke while trying to decide what to do about his car he decided to check his tickets.
“Then I woke up and checked my tickets. I checked the fourth ticket and I saw the ‘4′ and then the next number and the next number and the next number,” he said. “I’m like, ‘Wow!’ It was just crazy.”
Dowe matched 5 numbers which won him a cool million that was doubled when the 2x Megaplier ticket was drawn. He walked away with $1.4 million after taxes.
He now has enough money to fix his car.
