MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) -- A Manitowoc man is jailed in an unusual hit-and-run crash.

Police say a vehicle driven by a 20-year-old man collided with a pedal tricycle driven by a 56-year-old man about 8:30 p.m. Saturday. Authorities say tricyclist went partly through the windshield of the vehicle, but the driver did not stop. Instead, police say, the driver headed home, striking another vehicle along the way.

A witness followed the suspect to his home and called police, who arrested him.

The tricyclist was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

The suspect, who suffered a significant cut on his hand, faces charges including OWI causing injury
