    MANITOWOC — “God is good. He had his hands on me that day,†said Steven Gove of Manitowoc, the newspaper carrier who escaped serious injury after he was stuck in the windshield of a moving vehicle that hit him Saturday night.

    “I’m just happy to be alive,†said Gove on Monday as he recalled the bizarre hit-and-run crash at the intersection of Marshall and South 16th streets.

    Police arrested a 20-year-old Manitowoc man who was allegedly intoxicated when he hit Gove as he was riding his three-wheeled bike.

    “I was wearing my blue overcoat with my neon reflective vest. I had my front and rear flashers on. I have no idea why he didn’t see me,†said Gove, who had visible scratches to his face from going through the windshield.

    Gove said he was returning home from delivering 275 Lakeshore Chronicles, when the next thing he knew he was upside down in the car.

    “I was conscious for the whole time,†Gove said.

    “Everything was in the car except for my knees and feet. I turned to him and said, ‘Hello, I’m the guy you hit on the bicycle,’†he said. “I had no idea at all why he wasn’t acknowledging me.â€

    The driver continued east on Marshall Street, ran a stop sign at South 14th Street, crashed into a vehicle and kept going, according to the Manitowoc Police Department.

    Gove, 56, said he was planning to see his lawyer about the crash.

    “I’m starting to get nauseous and a little dizzy when I get up. I’ve had a headache ever since I went through the windshield. The nausea and dizziness just started today,†he said.

    He harbors no ill will against the driver, however, Gove said.

    “I have no malice toward him,†he said. “I hope he can get his life straightened out. He’s a young man. He deserves a second chance.â€

    The driver finally noticed Gove after he stopped at his residence in the 1100 block of South 13th Street.

    “He looked at me and said ‘Who are you? What are you doing in the car?’†Gove said. “He started freaking out: ‘I’m going to jail, I’m going to jail.’â€

    After the driver locked the car doors and went home, Gove was able to pull himself into the car.

    I saw a movie that was similarly based on this premise. It was pretty good.

    The gentleman that was struck was much nicer than I would have been.

    This has happened before, where the woman driver got out of her car, went inside, and let a guy die as he pleaded for her to get help.

    Yeah, it went on for quite awhile, she had the car parked in the garage and he was alive stuck in the windshield. She eventually bragged about it at a party, I think.

    Exactly what I thought when I saw this on my local news. There was also another victim in that case IIRC that was paralyzed.

    Texas Woman Hits Man With Car, Leaves Him to Die in Her Garage
    Nurse's aide Chante Jawan Mallard, 27, of Fort Worth, Texas, is finally on trial for first-degree murder. Mallard's car hit Gregory Biggs, 37, so hard that his upper body lodged into her windshield and his legs were thrown up over the roof of the car.

    She drove a mile down the highway, then through town to her house, where she parked the car in the garage, closed the garage door, and let the man bleed to death. The County Medical Examiner says Biggs could have lived if he'd had medical attention.

    The police report says, "Chante kept going in and out of the garage telling the man she was sorry. She does not know how long it took the man to die she quit going out into the garage." Mallard's speaking of the incident at a party lead to her arrest.


    Apparently, this happens a lot. While searching for the story above I found the ones below plus three more that I didn't bother to add.

    The "victim" has to be mentally challenged right? I mean come on. If you are stuck in the windshield are you really going to ride there calmly until the drunk gets all the way home?

    Reading the guy's quotes, all I could think of was, "Fuckin' way she goes, boys. Fuckin' way she goes." Surprised to see this wasn't a Canadian story.
