MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A Manitowoc man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he struck a bicyclist with his vehicle, and kept driving home while the victim was lodged in his windshield.
20-year-old Jamie Hang waived a preliminary hearing Wednesday. He entered not guilty pleas to felony counts of reckless endangerment and hit-and-run causing injury -- plus misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run and causing injury by driving drunk with an excess blood alcohol level.
Hang is scheduled to meet with Manitowoc County prosecutors on March 27th to consider a pre-trial settlement of his case.
Authorities said Hang struck 56-year-old Steven Gove the night of January 18th, while Gove was on a three-wheeled bike finishing deliveries of the Lakeshore Chronicle. The victim escaped with minor injuries.
