Mass. man’s speeding excuse? I won the lottery!

HINGHAM, Mass. (AP) – A Massachusetts man busted for speeding had a pretty good excuse when he was pulled over: He had just won a big lottery prize and was on his way to collect his cash.

It turns out Thursday was 22-year-old Scott Lowe’s lucky day in more ways than one. The officer who pulled him over in Hingham (HING’-um) issued a verbal warning and urged him to drive safely.

Lowe, of Rockland, told the officer he was speeding because he had won $50,000 on a scratch-off ticket and was on his way to Massachusetts State Lottery headquarters in Braintree to collect his winnings.

WCVB-TV (

After the warning, he went on his way and claimed his prize.
