Pedestrian knocked out by bicycle collision

A bicyclist and pedestrian suffered injures Wednesday when the pedestrian walked into the path of the bike in downtown Madison.

Emergency responders were called to the 100 block of West Johnson Street at 7:58 p.m.

The bicyclist, a 25-year-old Stoughton man, told police he was peddling hard and tried to avoid the 37-year-old Sun Prairie woman who was walking.

A witness told police there were no cars coming at the time the woman tried to cross the street, and she didn’t see the bicyclist.

The pedestrian was knocked unconscious and suffered a likely concussion. She was admitted for observation at a hospital.

The bicyclist suffered road rash injuries.
