Bicyclist hits car after not stopping at intersection, Madison police say

A bicyclist who failed to stop at a stop sign at an East Side intersection early Tuesday morning was injured when he hit a car and flew over the car's hood.

The crash happened at about 12:20 a.m. at Williamson and South Livingston Streets, Madison police said.

The 24-year-old bicyclist was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He was helped at the scene by the driver and passenger in the car.

According to police:

The driver of the car, a 38-year-old Madison man, told police he was westbound on Wiliamson Street when the southbound bicyclist, reportedly going fast, failed to stop and struck the passenger side door, going up and over the hood of the car.

"The distraught driver and the passenger rendered aid to the bicyclist prior to the arrival of first responders," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

The bicyclist was cited for failure to yield at a controlled intersection.
