A car dealership is offering a free truck to the Marine veteran who commandeered a truck and loaded it with dozens of victims and took them to hospitals during the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Taylor Winston, 29, found keys to a utility truck and he and others started loading the injured into the truck, making two trips to deliver 30 people to different area hospitals.

Shane Beus, owner of a car dealership in Gilbert, Arizona, read about Winston’s actions and reached out to the veteran who lives in San Diego, according to the Arizona Republic.

Winston is expected to pick up the silver F-150 Monday.

Winston said he will sell his current vehicle and donate the money to victims of the shooting.
