Report: Man who saves community from pursuit gets truck repaired

Not too long ago, a 14-year old kid stole his grandfather’s Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride in Utah, which eventually led police to catch on, engaging in a pursuit of the teen.

Unfortunately, the teen was also reckless enough to storm through a crowded park filled with kids running about and enjoying their day. That’s when Bryson Rowley decided to act on his instincts to keep others from getting hurt. So he hopped into his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, waited for the Veloster to come back around toward the park, and brought the chase to an end himself.

Being heralded as a hero for the community, and rightfully so, others couldn’t just stand around and watch his acts of bravery go unrewarded just like Rowley couldn’t just stand around to watch and wait until the teen in the Veloster damaged something or someone. As a result, his local community pitched into repair his truck with donated parts along with some $15,000 worth of upgrades.
