OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma trucker and his wife could now use an armored truck. Don and Joyce Harvey are the winners of a 105-point-eight million-dollar Powerball jackpot.

The win is timely. Harvey says his long-haul truck, which had almost two million miles on it, has a blown engine. It died this week.

The Harveys say they plan to pay off bills, help family members and think about buying a new home with their winnings. They chose to receive a 33 million dollar lump sump after taxes.

Joyce Harvey said she was in "absolute disbelief and shock" when she checked the numbers on her computer Thursday night and found she had the winner.

A truck driver all his adult life, Don Harvey, who is 64, says he doesn't plan to stop working. He's in the market for another big rig, but not a new one. He says they cost too much and depreciate too quickly.
