A delivery truck driver has come forward to claim his half of a $648 million jackpot, the second largest in US history, lottery officials said Friday.
Steve Tran bought five tickets in San Jose, California, ahead of the hotly anticipated December 17 Mega Millions sweepstakes -- but then promptly forgot about them.
Until, that is, he woke up in the middle of the night on Monday and checked his stash to discover he had become a multi-millionaire.
The winning numbers were eight, 20, 14, 17, 39 and Mega Ball seven.
