A partially-clothed man seen jogging near South Stoughton Road Tuesday night was ticketed for leaving a crash scene after flipping his vehicle and fleeing.

The 19-year-old was ticketed for failure to have control, hit and run and operating after revocation, Madison police said.

The unidentified man was going south on Stoughton Road at about 7:45 p.m. Tuesday when he made a lane change at the same time another car was doing likewise.

The driver over-corrected, his car hitting the shoulder and flipping over into the northbound lanes, coming to rest in a group of trees.

"The suspect driver fled and stripped some clothing, but was caught by officers after he initially claimed he was an uninvolved jogger," said Police Chief Mike Koval.

Nobody else was involved in the crash. The driver was checked for impairment and was determined to be not impaired.
