Sheriff: Hit-and-run driver tried to hide vehicle near crash site

A man suspected of striking a motorcycle and fleeing the scene Sunday afternoon reportedly tried to hide his SUV on private property down the road, officials said.

The Dane County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash on County Road P at 2:15 p.m.

A motorcycle driven by 38-year-old Rodney Karls of Sauk City was rear-ended by a silver Dodge as Karls attempted to make a left turn onto Martinsville Road, the sheriff's office said.

The silver Dodge left the scene of the crash, according to the report. Karls was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

A short time later, a property owner on County P called 911 to report a suspicious man on her property attempting to hide his vehicle behind her boat, according to the report. Deputies made contact with the man who admitted being involved in the crash earlier. The man was cooperative, didn't appear intoxicated and consented to a blood draw.
