Vehicle involved in hit-and-run crash that killed pedestrian located, police say

The vehicle involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash on Madison’s north side has been found, police said.

Traffic investigators with the Madison Police Department have not made an arrest in the case, according to Joel DeSpain, a spokesman for the department.

The crash happened Thursday around 10 p.m. when Darrell Sunderlage, 60, of Madison, was struck as he walked along the 1700 block of Northport Drive. Sunderlage died several days later, DeSpain said.

The vehicle involved was an SUV. Officers originally thought a sedan was involved. They also had very little surveillance video to review to help them with their investigation.

The involved SUV was located in Madison, DeSpain said.

It was raining heavily Thursday night at the time of the crash and the victim was wearing dark clothing. Police said his body landed around 35-yards from where he was struck.

Anyone with information on this crash is asked to contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
