The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a crash last night, Friday, August 11, 2023, where a man walking on the roadway was struck by a passing motorist.

The incident happened just before 9 PM on County Highway A near County Highway AW in northern Dodge County, about 10 miles west of Waupun.

According to the sheriff’s office, a 48 year old man from Markesan was walking in the northbound lane of County Highway A when struck by a northbound vehicle which was driven by a 67 year old female from rural Randolph.

The man sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported by ambulance to Waupun Memorial Hospital and then transferred to UW-Hospital in Madison.

Officers say the man was wearing dark clothing on an unlit roadway and strong storms approaching the area may have contributed to the crash.
