MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - Steven Gove will soon get a new tricycle to deliver newspapers in Manitowoc.
His old trike got mangled up last Saturday night when it was hit by an alleged drunk driver.
John Brunner, who owns The Fitness Store in Manitowoc, said he was so touched by Gove's calm response to the incident, that he agreed to give Gove a new adult trike for free. It will be delivered in a few days.
Gove called it unbelievable, and he couldn't fathom such generosity.
A 20-year-old man is awaiting charges in last weekend's incident. Authorities said he hit the tricycle that Gove was using to deliver the Lakeshore Chronicle -- and Gove was pushed through the car's windshield where he stayed until the driver got home and discovered what happened.
Gove escaped with minor cuts. He walked off until police found him about a block away. Gove said he loves delivering newspapers, and he'll be back at it soon.
