Madison police have recovered the Dodge Durango involved in a hit-and-run with a bicyclist on Tuesday, but the driver remains at large, according to police spokesman Joel DeSpain.
The biker, a 23-year-old woman, suffered severe injuries to her lower body when the driver first hit her, then dragged her for some distance on Whitney Way, just off the west Beltline Highway.
According to the police report, the driver didn't stop until a Roto-Rooter truck blocked her path. When she then realized the bicyclist was under the truck, she maneuvered around the truck, turned onto Odana Rd., hit a parked car and sped away.
A Madison police official declined to share any details about when and where the Durango was found. The search for the driver continues.
Anyone with information on the suspect driver should call 911. Tips can also be made to Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
