Pedestrian seriously injured after being struck by vehicle in Dodge County
DODGE COUNTY — A pedestrian was transported to the hospital by Flight for Life early Tuesday morning, Nov. 13 after being struck by a vehicle in Dodge County.
It happened around 5:30 a.m. on US 151 near Jackson Road in the Town of Calamus.
According to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, the preliminary investigation shows that a 25-year-old Madison man was traveling north on US 151 in the right traffic lane when he struck one of two pedestrians walking along the same traffic lane — a 24-year-old Fox Lake woman.
The right side of the vehicle struck the woman — and she was thrown into the grass area east of the highway.
The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle stopped at the scene and was cooperating with law enforcement. He was not injured in the crash.
The other pedestrian, a 44-year-old Beaver Dam man, was not injured — but the Fox Lake woman sustained serious injuries in the crash and was transported to Beaver Dam Hospital and later flown by Flight for Life to UW Madison.
The crash remains under investigation by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.
