Car strikes bicyclist, drives off

Police are looking for the driver of a car that struck a bicyclist on Madison’s west side Sept. 20.

Police said a car pulled into a bike lane on Hammersley Road while trying to pass another car when it crashed into a bicyclist.

The 55-year-old Madison man who was struck rolled up the hood of the car and suffered abrasions but was not seriously hurt.

The incident took place at about 5:23 p.m., and the car left the scene without stopping.

The car was a boxy-shaped ’90s to early 2000s model maroon sedan with no rear plate.  The driver was between 15 to 19 years old.

Anyone with information on the car, or its driver, are asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward.
