Utah community repairs man's truck that stopped pursuit

The truck held up considerably well after a teen crashed into it, stopping the May 31 pursuit, but the front suspension and bumper were damaged

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah — When Bryson Rowley used his truck to prevent a teen in a stolen car from driving through a park full of children a third time, he wasn’t worried about the damage that would be done to his vehicle.

The truck held up considerably well after the 14-year-old crashed into it, stopping the police chase on May 31, but the front suspension and bumper were damaged. Bryan Ellison, co-owner of the auto body shop West Valley Carstar, said he saw Rowley’s story on the news and decided he wanted to help.

“I knew the insurance, because it was intentionally done, wouldn’t pay for (the repairs),” Ellison said. “Just knowing that he could have saved multiple kids' lives — the least I could do was get the truck fixed at no cost.”
