Getting into an intentional wreak is not on anybody’s to-do list, but it’s been the talk of the town in West Valley City, Utah as a man’s heartwarming tale of heroism brought out the best of in this community.
Bryson Rowley was that hero who identified the danger, where a 14-year old kid stole his grandfather’s Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride – through a park full of children.
Rather than sit back and watch this terrifying scene, Rowley jumped into his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 and drove it into the threatening runaway hatchback. The collision cost Rowley over $7,500 in repairs to his truck, but instead of getting stuck with the bill – in which insurance would have probably refused to pay since the crash was technically intentional, the community of West Valley City pitched in a helping hand.
Bryan Ellison, owner of West Valley Carstar, along with his brother, saw the news on television and wanted to help. They brought Rowley a rental car, and took his Ram truck to the auto repair shop. People from around the community donated parts, and a total of more than $15,000 of work and upgrades were performed on the Ram that was returned to Bryson Rowley in better than new condition.
