The Dodge County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded at 8:07 p.m. to a report of a car versus bicycle crash on Highway 175 north of Meridian Road in the town of Theresa.

Preliminary investigation shows that Kyle J. Dais, 25, of Fond Du Lac, was headed north on Highway 175 on a mountain bike equipped with a front and rear light. Dais was struck by a car that continued north on Highway 175 without stopping to check for injuries or reporting the crash. Dais was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The vehicle should be missing the passenger side mirror and may have other damage consistent with hitting a person on a bicycle. The sheriff's office is requesting any information on vehicles that match the description above.
