WESTPORT, WI (WTAQ) - A bicyclist from Madison was killed, when she was hit by a pickup truck.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. Monday near the entrance to Governor Nelson State Park on Dane County Trunk “M” in the town of Westport.

Sheriff’s deputies said the bicycle and the pickup were both heading in the same direction when the truck veered to the right and hit the bicyclist, who was riding on the right shoulder.

A 37-year-old Madison woman on the bike died at the scene. The truck was driven by a 21-year-old Waunakee man.

The crash is still under investigation.
