TOMS RIVER - Sixteen workers from a county garage in Toms River reportedly have one of the three winning tickets in the $448 million Powerball jackpot. The cash value of the jackpot is $258 million.
Ocean County Vehicle Maintenance Department Director Jim Pine and Freeholder Jack Kelly say the employees have the ticket sold at an Acme Markets store in Little Egg Harbor.
Pine says they're a group of "wonderful, hardworking people," who showed up for work on Thursday.
The holder of the second winning ticket, also from New Jersey, hasn't come forward yet. That ticket was sold at a Super Stop & Shop in South Brunswick. State lottery officials say none of the winning tickets sold in New Jersey have been officially validated yet.
Paul White, a 45-year-old project engineer from Ham Lake, Minn., claimed his third of the jackpot Thursday. He's taking a lump sum, which will amount to $58.3 million after taxes.
The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 5, 25, 30, 58 and 59 with a Powerball of 32.
In March, 44-year-old Pedro Quezada, of Passaic, was the sole winner of a Powerball drawing worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.
