MANITOWOC, WI (WHBL) - A 56 year old newspaper carrier who escaped serious injury in an unusual hit and run accident in Manitowoc Saturday night is speaking out about his experience.  Steven Gove was struck as he rode his three-wheel bike around 8:30pm.  Gove told the Herald Times-Reporter, "God is good.  He had his hands on me that day."   A 20 year old male driver struck Gove as he was returning home from delivering newspapers.  Gove said, the next thing he knew, he was upside down in the car with his feet and knees hanging outside of the windshield - and was conscious the entire time.  Gove explained he turned to the driver and said, "Hello, I'm the guy you hit on the bicycle," but the driver didn't acknowledge him.  The driver also struck a car two blocks away with the victim still stuck in the windshield, but didn't notice Gove until stopping at his house in the 1100 block of South 13th Street in Manitowoc.  Gove told the newspaper the driver looked at hiim and said, "Who are you?  What are you doing in the car?  I'm going to jail...I'm going to jail."  After the driver locked the car doors and went into his home, Gove pulled himself ouit of the car and sought help.  The driver was later arrested at his residence and was taken to the county jail.  Gove said he has no malice toward him, adding, "I hope he can get his life straightened out.  He's a young man and deserves a second chance."
