Okay I realize this story is about a Guy on a bicycle not a motorcycle but he is still a rider and this could have happened to any of us, thank God he's mostly okay.

Suspected drunk driver doesn’t notice the cyclist he hit stuck in his windshield, drives home

Odd News By Will Lerner 22 hours ago

Let’s start off with the good news: Steven Gove, the cyclist who was hit by a supposedly intoxicated driver this past weekend, did not suffer any seriousinjuries and appears to be doing ok. He’s fortunate in that sense, considering what happened. As the Green Bay Press Gazette reports, the Manitowoc, Wisconsin resident was riding home on his bicycle after delivering editions of the Lakeshore Chronicle. On the way, an as-of-now unnamed driver struck him in a way that caused Gove to get stuck in the car’s windshield.


Gove never lost consciousness, nor did he seem to lose his cool, when he was all of the sudden stuck in a stranger’s car. He told the Press Gazette, “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.’ I had no idea at all why he wasn’t acknowledging me.”

That’s right, the driver had no idea that someone was in his car. He kept going, hitting a vehicle along the way. As WLUK Fox 11 News reports, it was about that time that a witness noticed what was happening and called 911. She followed the impaired driver to his house. That’s right, the driver kept driving all the way home.


The driver started to lock up his car when he finally noticed Gove, who had managed to climb all the way into the car. Gove recalled to WLUK, “Then he saw me sitting in his car and he said, 'Who are you?' What are you doing in there?' I said, 'I'm the guy you hit on the bicycle. I went through your windshield!'"


Gove got out of the car and walked away. Despite the ordeal, he only had some scratches. The driver suffered a more severe cut on his hand. Police arrived and arrested the driver. He has since posted bail and no charges have been filed yet.

Meanwhile, Mr. Gove is kind of amazing. He told the Press Gazette, ““I have no malice toward [the driver]. I hope he can get his life straightened out. He’s a young man. He deserves a second chance.” When he is feeling better, Gove plans on returning to his newspaper route, and overall is, “happy to be alive.”

Absolutely Amazing! Obviously this driver is past brown-outs and into full blackouts. Glad the bicyclist is OK- his guardian angel was working overtime that day!!!

Not really something to brag about but that's my home town. I have moved on to Milwaukee but this type of action does not surprise me at all.

Ouch... That's pretty crazy. I never heard of anyone being that drunk to not notice someone in your car... I might want to stay away from Milwaukee..
