Police seek hit-and-run vehicle in Beltline rollover wreck

The rollover crash that delayed Beltline traffic Friday morning was caused by a hit-and-run driver, police said.

Madison police said a car making a sudden lane change on the West Beltline at about 7:45 a.m. near Todd Drive collided with another vehicle.

The crash caused the victim’s vehicle to roll over and skid some 350 feet on its roof, officials said.

No injured were reported, according to the report.

Witnesses told police the hit-and-run driver was operating a dark-colored or olive green sedan, possibly a Chevrolet, Buick or Saturn. It would have significant front-end damage.

The crash caused the center and right eastbound lanes of the Beltline to be closed for about a half-hour. Eastbound and westbound Beltline lanes were backed up briefly and the scene was cleared by 8:30 a.m.

Anyone with information on the hit-and-run vehicle should contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
