The possible 2nd Powerball jackpot ticket holder seen celebrating on a Maryland gas station video has been located.
Just one day after his celebration was captured on the gas station cameras — and shown on news programs all over the country — the man was back at work for the Virginia DOT, where a reporter attempted to interview him.
“Did you win the lottery,” NBC 4’s Pat Collins shouted at the man through a chain link fence. The unidentified highway safety worker was stone faced and silent as he drove away in the same SUV that was captured on the gas station surveillance video.
Collins also located one of the man’s co-workers who was seen on the same surveillance video. “I promised the gentleman that what we would do is wait for him to come forth and speak with you all publicly,” said the co-worker.
The possible Powerball winner told a cashier at the gas station that his ticket matched the Powerball numbers drawn Wednesday night.
Cashier Kamran Afgan told NBC News the man said, “Oh my God,” after he realized he was holding the winning ticket worth $293.7 million.
Two winning tickets were sold in Missouri and Arizona. A husband and wife from Dearborn, MO came forward to claim their jackpot. But Arizona Lottery officials say no one has come forward to claim the jackpot there.
