On Thursday night, Mobley was on his motorcycle when he was rear-ended by a green pickup truck at I-40 and Choctaw Rd. The Green truck sped away after the accident.

Dar Holdsworth of Brass Balls Cycles says it will take some time, but he will fix Mobley's bike.

"If we all just help out a little bit the world would be a better place," he said. 

Holdsworth is also working with Oklahoma City's "King Custom Cycles" to present a local veteran with a new motorcycle very soon. Holdsworth says through the local organization "Pro's For Vets" he hopes to give away a few motorcycles to deserving veterans each year.
