So great that the community would do this for him...just as great that he did something for the community.

Well done Mr. Rowley well done.

Class act by all the sponsors who chipped in to fix his truck which is beautiful by the way. I will make sure to frequent your establishments as much as I can.

Finally some one who truly loves and protects his community gets the recognition they deserve.

One for the good guy's!

Assuming that the guy he helped stopped is convicted, part of the legal financial obligations imposed by the court will be restitution. The good news for at least some of the generous people who helped fix the truck is that anything that covers the cost of restoring the truck to the condition it was in before the accident will have to be repaid to them by the other driver, along with damage to the car he stole and anything else he damaged along the way.

They may need to raise money for Rowley to pay for the 14 year olds faked medical costs and the lawsuit that will surely follow. You know how lawyers circle like vultures waiting for an opportunity to make money.

Let's be serious here. No attorney is going to take a case that's a stone cold loser. Do you think a Utah jury is going to feel sorry for the driver who fled cops in a stolen car? The attorney doesn't get a penny unless he wins in a civil suit, and the costs of putting such a case forward are huge. In theory, the burden of costs is on the client, but since the attorney usually fronts those costs, he'd have to be nuts to take a case like that. He'd also be taking a risk of court sanctions for frivolous filing. Attorneys may be many things, but they're generally not stupid.
