The Madison Police Department said it is seeking charges against the driver in a fatal collision with a bicyclist on East Washington Avenue earlier this month.
In a short updated statement Friday, the department said it has completed the investigation into the July 2 crash that resulted in the death of 57-year-old David J. Frischkorn, of Madison.
Frischkorn was biking in the morning hours when he entered East Washington Avenue at Pawling Street and was struck by a 28-year-old woman driving in the outbound lanes, according to police.
Potential charges against the woman, whose name has not been released, have been forwarded to the Dane County District Attorney’s Office for review and a determination of whether charges will be filed. Madison police did not respond to a question about what charges are being sought.
During an initial statement after the crash, police said the driver showed no indication of impairment.
At the time, Frischkorn’s death was the fourth traffic fatality of the year to occur on East Washington Avenue, according to police. It happened less than a week after a pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle on the major thoroughfare closer to the state Capitol. The driver in that case fled the scene and was later arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run resulting in death.
