The Full Story:

A college student in Wisconsin saw his new truck go up in flames, but a kind police officer has stepped in to help. Aaron Rodriguez worked all summer to save up to buy a vehicle and found a Dodge truck for $3,250. He was on his way home with his new set of wheels when it started smoking. Half an hour later, he watched as it caught fire in a gas station parking lot.

The 19-year-old was upset, but Delafield police officer Dan Barber responded to the call and said it was a private sale between two people with an agreement for an as-is vehicle, so there was nothing he could do professionally. But personally? Barber decided to help Rodriguez out and set up a GoFundMe accountto get him a new truck. Donations have been coming in and it’s raised over $4-thousand so far. And to make sure the next ride is in solid condition, All World Transmission is donating an hour of vehicle inspection to Rodriguez!

“I’m completely amazed that so many people were willing to lend me a hand,” the grateful teen says.
