MANITOWOC, WI (WHBL) - A Manitowoc man has pleaded innocent to charges that he struck a bicyclist with his vehicle, and kept driving home while the victim was lodged in his windshield. 20 year-old Jamie Hang waived a preliminary hearing on Wednesday. He entered innocent pleas to felony counts of reckless endangerment and hit-and-run causing injury, plus misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run and causing injury by driving drunk with an excess blood alcohol level. Hang is scheduled to meet with Manitowoc County prosecutors on March 27th to consider a pre-trial settlement of his case. Authorities said Hang struck 56-year-old Steven Gove the night of January 18th while Gove was on a three-wheeled bike finishing newspaper deliveries. The victim escaped with minor injuries.
