SYRACUSE, Utah — A Utah man used his truck to stop a teen driver who drove into a park and nearly hit several children, according to a report on Fox13now.com. Bryson Rowley said he used his truck to end the chase because he was afraid for the safety of the children at the park.

“The person driving the truck could see it was turning back into the park, and he did not want the car to hit all of the children, or any of the children, and he actually pulled his truck in the way so the car collided with the truck,” Syracuse Police Officer Erin Behm said.

“My heart dropped,” Bryson’s wife Brandy said. “I honestly thought one of those kids is going to die.”

The teen, who is accused of taking his grandfather’s car for a joyride, was taken to a nearby juvenile detention center.

    That driver deserves not only an honorary award, but a new truck! Faith in humanity restored! A man and his truck…putting the children first definitely shows how much of a real man this driver is!

    True. But in reality he’s probably getting screwed by his insurance company for doing the right thing. Hopefully the police department will do something since he protected and served. This could have ended much worst, glad he put that nightmare to an end .

    I was thinking the same thing as Andrea! … Awesome thing you did out there Mr. Rowley, now if we can just get that deductible, we can have your truck like new in no time!

    I hope his insurance company doesn’t jack his rates! also that the community can come together and pay for his repairs…he did a self-less act and shouldn’t be punished for it! God Bless him!
