He took note of the vehicle's license plate number and called police.
Things are looking up for 23-year-old Rory MacLeod.
Since first telling his story to The Review in April, MacLeod, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, is back on his feet - this time without the use of a cane - and is looking forward to being a father in the near future.

There are those who never truly settle in life but can nevertheless put their feet down, with ease, in each and every place they choose.
But ask Lyndell Montgomery if growing up on a fishing boat in northern British Columbia has anything to do with her quasi-nomadic (at least until recently) lifestyle and she might reply that you've merely scratched the surface.
The 22 people who gathered for a meeting to discuss the future of St. Paul's Chapel have showed the members of the Dalkeith History Club that there is interest in saving the community's last remaining heritage building.

After months of negotiations with the Diocese of Alexandria-Cornwall to save St. Paul's Chapel, the community's last remaining heritage building, the Dalkeith History Club's passion and effort has paid off.
During an interview with The Review Tuesday morning, club spokesperson Frances Fraser said the diocese has offered the building to the community for one dollar, providing it pays for the severance, which could amount to around $5,000.
