Williamson St. and S. Patterson St.




MPD Investigator


During this evening's shift one of the Madison Police Department's Investigator squads was struck by a hit and run driver.  The crash occured near the intersection of Williamson St. and S. Patterson St. around 2:40 AM and was forceful enough to overturn the Investigator's full size SUV.  After the crash the suspect driver fled the area on foot.  A MPD K9, additional MPD resources, as well as deputies from the Dane Co. Sheriff's Dept. and personnel from the Wisconsin State Patrol all responded to the crash to assist.  Personnel from the Madison Fire Department were able to to extricate the Investigator from his squad and he was transported to a local hospital with non life threatening injuries.   At this point the investigation into this incident is ongoing.
