BARNESVILLE, Ga. – The homeless college student who biked six hours to college is now set to receive a car.
Fred Barley, 19, captured the hearts of people around the country last month when he rode his bike from Conyers to Barnesville to register for classes at Gordon College.
Thousands of people heard his story and chipped in to help him with money, places to stay and a job.
Now he’s getting a new car with the help of a stranger.
Car dealer Andy Ungaro drove the car down from Philadelphia to give it to Barley.
“I watched his story and looked into it a little bit. It seemed like it was the real deal,” Ungaro said.
Some had begun to question Barley’s storyafter it went viral.
