police officer paralyzed gets new vanA couple who wished to remain anonymous purchased a minivan from Dick Hannah Toyota in Washington last week to donate to Portland Police Officer Paul Meyer and family after seeing news reports about Meyer’s paralysis from an accident.

“A man contacted our dealership last week and told us he and his wife would like to purchase a Toyota Sienna minivan,” wrote Brian Sanders, the car dealership’s General Manager. “They are paying cash for it, but they’ll never sit behind the wheel.”

“He and his wife are not wealthy,” continued Sanders on the company’s Facebook Page. “They were both in the military and recently received a modest inheritance.”

They decided to gift the new vehicle to the police officer who was permanently paralyzed from the waist down when a tree snapped and fell on him during an ATV training accident last November.

“This short story has taken me 3 hours to write already. I honestly don’t know what to say. How amazing and inspiring are these people? While this couple is asking that their names not be shared, the story of their amazing generosity needs to be.”
