A 67-year-old man's car was hit by a stolen car on the East Side Thursday morning after the stolen car was racing at around 100 mph, Madison police said.

Longtime Madison Teachers Inc. leader John Matthews explains why collective bargaining still matters.

The 67-year-old man was driving on E. Washington Avenue near N. Fourth Street when he was hit by the stolen white Kia Forte at around 6:10 a.m., Madison police spokesperson Tyler Grigg said. 

A witness saw the stolen car racing a dark-colored SUV and going around 100 mph on E. Washington Avenue when the driver lost control and caused the crash. 

The driver of the stolen Kia left the car at the scene and fled in the dark-colored SUV that was waiting, Grigg said. The 67-year-old man was not injured. 

Madison police are investigating.
