October 22, 2013 – At approximately 1:35 pm, Dane County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to STH 113, just south of CTH V in the town of Vienna, for a truck vs. bicycle crash.
A Fed Ex truck operated by Dean Cossette, age 51 of Madison, was traveling northbound on STH 113, and attempting to pass a bicyclist traveling in the same direction, when the bicyclist suddenly swerved in front of the truck. The bicyclist, Mickel J. Paulson, age 20 of Waunakee, was transported to a local hospital by Waunakee EMS with non-life threatening injuries. Mr. Cossette was not injured.
Deputies are working to determine why the bicyclist swerved into the path of the truck. No citations have been issued, however, the crash remains under investigation.
