Omaha Man Claims Fifth Truck$ & Buck$ Truck


Patrick Murphy of Omaha is the fifth winner of a 2017 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew Flex Fuel truck in the 22nd edition of the Nebraska Lottery’s $2 Truck$ & Buck$ Scratch game.

Murphy purchased his winning ticket from Hy-Vee #10, 3410 North 156th Street in Omaha.

Nebraska Lottery officials presented Murphy with his prize Thursday, May 25 at Hy-Vee. Murphy said that he purchased the ticket and stuck it on the refrigerator door for a few days before his wife Laurie noticed it and scratched it. “I couldn’t believe it was true,” he said. “I had to check it three times. When I came to the store and had them verify the ticket, then I thought it must be real.”

“It’s a good feeling to actually win something,” said Murphy. “I can’t wait to drive it.”
