Tommy Lee of Clermont, a retired truck driver, won a $150,000 top prize in the Georgia Lottery instant game Giant Jumbo Bucks.

Lee, 64, claimed his prize earlier this month at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Duluth.

Lanier Food Mart in Clermont sold the winning ticket.

Recently retired, Lee worked as a truck driver for more than 30 years. He and his wife have one adult son.

“It still hasn’t soaked in yet,” he said. “I’ve got a lot on my mind, so I don’t have plans right off yet.”
