Michigan man dies in Florida while delivering free bikes
KINGSFORD, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan Army veteran has been killed in a crash while delivering bicycles to children in Florida affected by Hurricane Ian. Steven Pringle was 57 years old.
The Detroit Free Press says Pringle was driving a pickup truck on November 23rd when he drove through a Punta Gorda intersection that was missing a stop sign due to the hurricane.
Pringle earlier this year told the Free Press that he had been in despair but he had an awakening while praying. He turned that despair into a bike shop in Kingsford, Michigan, where he fixed bikes, sold new ones and gave many away.
A son says he's been “blown away” by the reaction to his father's death.
