Driver in pedestrian crash accused of operating under the influence of methadone

A 31-year-old Portage man has been arrested under suspicion of operating under the influence of methadone when he was involved in a pedestrian accident on Wednesday.

The accident occurred in Madison when the man was turning onto Highway 51 from East Washington Avenue, hitting a 61-year-old woman who was crossing the highway. The woman was admitted to University of Wisconsin Hospital in critical condition, but later died.

This is not the first time that the driver has been charged with operating under the influence. According to a spokesman for the Madison Police Department, the man’s young daughter was in the car with him at the time of the incident, leading to an enhanced penalty. The crash is still under investigation.

Our deepest condolences are with the family and friends of the victim during the difficult time.
