MANITOWOC (WKOW) -- The owner of a bicycle shop in Manitowoc is donating a bike to a local newspaper carrier hurt in a hit and run crash this weekend.

Steven Gove was biking home after finishing his route when he was hit on Saturday. 

After Gove crashed through the windshield, police say the driver went on to hit a car before driving one block to his home, when he finally noticed Gove.

Gove didn't suffer any serious injuries but his bike was destroyed.

John Brunner at The Fitness Store in Manitowoc wanted to help out Gove, so Brunner ordered a new adult tricycle for him.

Other people in the community told him they want to chip in too.

"I thought it'd be a nice thing to do to get Mr. Gove on a new bike and to get him back on his route delivering papers again," says Brunner.

"It's really awesome. I need one for transportation. That's my main mode, except my feet or the bus. You can't really deliver the papers on the bus, they don't make that many stops. Ha!" says Gove.

He isn't sure when he'll be able to go back to work.

Manitowoc police are still investigating what charges to pursue against the driver.
