Cyclist struck in hit-and-run

According to Fon du Lac police, a 22-year-old woman was struck while riding her bicycle by a hit-and-run reckless driver this Wednesday.

The incident occurred as the cyclist was heading southbound on North Brooke Street around 4:45 p.m.

Police describe the suspect as being an older, heavy-set man, with a rusty blue car.

“We’re seeing a lot more people riding bikes,” said Deputy Chief Kevin Lemke. “It is healthier, and when gas prices go up and the economy is down, people ride bikes to save money. Whenever you have a lot of bikes and cars trying for the same real estate, there will be accidents. Unfortunately, the bicyclist is going to lose,” said Lemke.

Lemke said drivers should be cautious around cyclists, especially as summer begins.
