Press Release from Milton Police Department - Bicycle Accident

Here is a press release from the Milton Police Department about a recent bicycle accident.

On June 15th at approximately 11:35am the Milton Police Department and Milton Fire/EMS were dispatched to the intersection of John Paul Rd. and W. Madison Avenue for a traffic accident, with injury. Our initial investigation has determined that a 12 year old bicyclist was crossing Madison Avenue near that intersection when he was struck by an East bound vehicle. It does not appear that the operator of that vehicle had time to stop prior to the collision. 

Operating the motor vehicle was Danielle McCabe, 24, of 65 N. Janesville St., Milton. Ms. McCabe was cited for Causing Injury, While Operating With a Suspended License. She was also taken into custody and transported to the Rock County Jail due to an unrelated arrest warrant. 

The bicyclist had not been wearing a helmet, and was transported to Mercy Hospital for non-life threatening head and facial injuries.
