Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A Washington Uber driver stopped to gas up his car before his shift and bought a lottery ticket that earned him a $110,000 prize.

The Shoreline man told Washington's Lottery officials he was fueling up his car before starting his shift driving for Uber when he decided to buy a Hit 5 ticket from the Safeway Fuel store.

The man used his own numbers to buy the ticket, and discovered later that evening that he had won the $110,000 prize in the drawing.

The winner said he plans to use his prize money to take his two children out to dinner, pay off his debt and fund a family vacation.
