MADISON, Wis. - Two people were taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after a collision on Schroeder Road, according to a release from the Madison Fire Department.
Madison police said the pair was riding in an SUV in the 6400 block of Schroeder Road when the vehicle was rear-ended by a van.
The SUV driver slowed down to allow a pedestrian to cross the street when it was hit, police said. A witness told officers the van was going around 60 mph before the crash.
The force of the crash pushed the SUV into a tree. The driver of the van drove away from the scene, police said. Only one person inside the SUV was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, police said.
Both passengers were taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of their injuries.
The crash caused significant front-end and rear-end damage to the van, and its airbags were deployed. Madison police said they found the van unoccupied on Winston Court.
Officers have a good lead on a potential suspect, according to Madison police.
