OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A man whose pickup truck was stolen in Omaha while aiding some men with their car says he won’t stop helping people who need it.

A.J. Ostrander was headed down Interstate 80 Monday when he saw four men chasing a car rolling westbound on the shoulder. He maneuvered his pickup in front of it and got it stopped.

They ran up shouting thanks. When he got out to free his bumper from the car, one of the men got in his pickup and sped away while his three companions ran to the other side of the interstate. He jumped onto the pickup but soon fell off.

Police later told him the car had been stolen.

Ostrander says he used GPS on the pickup to find it near Eppley Airfield, abandoned.

He told station KETV: “You still got to trust people. There’s more good people than bad.”
