Details

Madison residents help guide responding police officers as a hit-and-run driver tries to getaway Sunday afternoon. He had just rear-ended a car on Milwaukee St. Thanks to the help of witnesses police were able to locate the suspect on a bike path near the Garver Feed Mill, 3244 Atwood Ave. The victim, a 30-year old Madison woman, was trying to turn left onto Lansing St. when she was struck from behind. The suspect's car suffered serious front-end damage, and his airbags deployed. He asked the victim if she was okay prior to taking off on foot. She told him she thought she was not injured. Upon arrest, he told an officer he was sorry. "I hope that lady is OK," he said.
