The University of Wisconsin Police Department is currently investigating an accident between a bicyclist and a moped driver that occurred Monday afternoon on Linden Drive.
UWPD is not releasing the individual’s information or his condition because of privacy concerns, UWPD Sgt. Aaron Chapin said. He added they are unsure of the exact cause of the crash, which occured at the 1600 block of Linden Drive.
Chapin added the moped driver, who is a UW student, was treated for injuries before being released. He said the individual faces no charges at this time.
According to Chapin, UWPD is investigating the accident as a motor vehicle crash, rather than a bicycle crash.
Ald. Scott Resnick, District 8, said he was unaware of the details of the accident or the stage of the investigation.
“If [a victim from an accident is] in a serious condition … we end up getting an alert usually as they hit the ambulance or get to the hospital,” Resnick said.
Resnick added in recent accidents in which the victim sustained serious injuries, such as a woman who was killed in a Madison Metro bus accident over the summer, city officials have been alerted and informed within 30-45 minutes of the accident. As of 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, no alert had been released.
