A group of 40 drivers from a Colonie trucking company have split a million dollars. That’s a second place prize from that growing Powerball jackpot back in January. The drivers all pooled their money and bought 100 tickets for the Saturday, January 9th drawing at our shop on Route 9 in Valatie. They ended up with the first five numbers – but not the Powerball.
Yolanda Vega brought the big check to the Valatie shop Monday and we finally met the man who actually purchased that ticket on behalf of the group, Kenneth Shumway of Colonie. Wait until you hear where he hid that ticket!
