A MALAYSIAN lorry driver used the number plates of vehicles he saw in an accident as his lottery numbers and scooped the jackpot.
He said: I saw the accident while I was on my way to work. Immediately I memorised the registration numbers of both vehicles, which were – 9503 & 5518.
Normally, I would only play Toto 4D but since I got a pair of numbers, I bet on the Toto 4D Jackpot.
The 53-year-old lorry driver scooped RM17 million ( £3 million) and even finished his delivery round before collecting his winnings.
Despite driving a truck for 30 years, he intends to carry on working: “I had sleepless nights after the great news but I am so happy that I can use the money to pay off my debts as well as to pay for my children’s education.”
