A lucky trucker in Mebane, North Carolina is $726,805 richer after winning last week’s Cash 5 jackpot.

According to a release from the North Carolina Education Lottery, Jerry Finn strayed from his normal number choices and selected “random numbers” that came to him out of the blue, ultimately leading to his winning ticket.

The morning after the drawing, he checked his numbers and realized he’d won.

“I went over and sat down. Then I stumbled into the shower and went to work,” laughed Finn.

Finn shared that he plans to pay bills, buy a new camper, and donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with his winnings.
