SYRACUSE, Utah – A Utah man who helped stop a police chase that came very close to children playing in a park nearby received some free repairs and upgrades.
Bryson Rowley used his truck to end a chase because he was afraid the children in the park were going to be hurt.
A group of local companies teamed up to repair and upgrade Rowley’s truck for free.
According to KTSU, those involved said they knew the man’s insurance would not cover the $7,000 in damages, so they stepped in. They included upgrades to the tune of $8,000, putting the total cost of the work at about $15,000.
Bryan Ellison, who helped with the repairs, said the price tag pales in comparison to what could have been lost.
“Some people would have been selfish and not wanted to risk their truck, but he wasn’t. And like I said before, you can’t replace kids, and if something were to happen to my kids I would be devastated,” he said.
