COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- South Carolina Education Lottery officials have released the name of one of the three lucky Palmetto State winners of Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Jerry Hucks, a truck builder for Daimler Trucks matched five numbers for a one million dollar payout.

"I'm not quitting, but I'm not working any more overtime," he said.

Hucks told lottery officials that the shock over winning a million dollars hit him so hard, he had to pull over and throw up.

Hucks used the Quick Pick feature, matching the first five numbers of the winning ticket (5, 16, 22, 23 and 29  PB: 6). The gas station where he bought the ticket got a $10,000 commission.

Hucks says he plans to pay off his house and will be right back at work tomorrow.

The other two Palmetto State millionaires have not yet come forward.
