Man Chases Down Car Thief, Then Donates Car To Victim So He Can Keep Delivering Pizzas

The only way the world really functions properly is if people look out for each other in times of need. When one person’s down on their luck, someone else can help out, and what goes around comes around. That’s exactly what one good samaritan did when they discovered a situation where they could help. After a pizza delivery guy’s car was stolen, a stranger donated his own car to him.

Kevin Lindke was driving home from work in Port Huron, Michigan when he noticed a car swerve in and out of lanes and onto the wrong freeway ramp. He called 911 and followed the car. Soon, that car smashed into another one and the driver rushed away. Lindke chased after her and convinced her to wait for the police.

Lindke soon learned that the driver had stolen the car from a pizza delivery guy named Rayden Jones. Jones had left his car for two minutes to drop off a pizza, and in that time, the car was stolen by a woman with a history of mental health issues.

“I was at Port Huron High School and was in and out in two minutes, and in that amount of time she was gone,” Jones told WDIV.

Jones was devastated to learn that his stolen car was totaled and he was left without a mode of transportation and without a way to continue doing his job. That’s when Lindke stepped in to help again.

Jones’ manager at Happy’s Pizza told Lindke what a hard worker Jones is. So Lindke wanted to make sure that Jones was able to keep his job. Lindke had been planning on selling his minivan, but instead, he gave it to Jones.

“I understand taking some hits and having to work through it,” Lindke said.

Jones was touched by Lindke’s generous gift.

“I’m not going to lie, I about burst into tears ’cause who does that?” Jones said. “It’s a Godsend. That this man, out of nowhere, who I’ve never met, would do this. It’s mind-blowing.”
