SPOKANE, Wash. – One week ago, we introduced you to Gilbert Ackaret. He was recently hit by a car, leaving his beloved tricycle destroyed. Once we told you about Gilbert’s heartbreak, our community stepped up big. “It upset me,” Gilbert said about the crash. “It very upset me.” Because a tricycle is Gilbert’s life line to lead the independent lifestyle he loves. “I help people, I clean,” he said. “I sell apples.” He needs his tricycle to work.
