Video: Utah Man Uses Pickup to End Police Chase


A Utah man used his pickup to stop a speeding vehicle from entering a crowded park.

Police in Utah were chasing a car on Saturday.  The car chase was ended at approximately 6:12 p.m., in front of Founders Park, which was full of children and families.

The runaway car was driven by a teen who had taken the car, without the owner’s permission, on a joyride.

According to a press release from the Syracuse Police Department, a man, who was listening to a police scanner app on his smart phone, was fearful the car would enter the park and injure children, took matters into his own hands.– Bryson Rowley used his pickup to block the teen’s joyride.

“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,” said Officer Erin Behm with the Syracuse Police Department.
