Louisville car dealership surprises Navy veteran with Toyota Camry

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Navy veteran and his family were surprised Monday with a generous donation from the Oxmoor Auto Group.

On Thursday the Malone family received the keys to a newly refurbished Toyota Camry. 

The car was donated by the Oxmoor Auto Group for the Progressive Insurance "Keys to Progress" program.

Brian Malone joined the Navy in 1980. His son, Jacob Malone, has autism and suffers from low muscle tone.

"It's gonna help out, he's got surgeries coming up," Malone said. "It'll make it easier to get him in and out, especially when the weather gets bad."

This month, more than 100 veterans and their families will get newly re-furbished cars as part of of the "Key's to Progress" event.
