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 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.

    Even though he technically caused the accident to stop the chase, with that situation, I truly hope and pray that the father in the truck doesn’t get charged with anything. He truly is a hero for putting himself in the way to not only protect his wife and children at the park, but everybody else that was there as well.

    Faith in humanity restored. The public taking the law into there own hands gets it done right.
