CARTHAGE, N.C. (WGHP) — Johnny Carlyle, of Carthage, says he can get a new truck after his weekly lottery purchase led to a $100,000 Cash 5 win, according to an NC Education Lottery news release.

“I’ve had my old one for over 20 years,” Carlyle said. “I’ll get a GMC or Chevy, whichever is a better deal.”

He bought his $1 Quick Pick ticket for Saturday’s drawing from the Speedway on U.S. 15-501 in Carthage.

Carlyle, an auto parts delivery driver, stopped to check his ticket Monday on his way to work.

After checking the ticket, he had to ask the cashier for help.

“I thought something was wrong with the machine,” Carlyle said. “She handed me the winning numbers, and all five matched.”

Once he realized what he won, he called his wife to share the news.

“She got excited and thought I was messing with her head,” Carlyle said.

Carlyle arrived at lottery headquarters Tuesday to collect his prize.
