Madison (WKOW) --- A Fitchburg man was injured Sunday night after being targeted for retaliation.
The 38-year-old victim says he was on Allied Drive Sunday night when several people attacked him. He tried to get away, but was tripped. Witnesses say they saw several men around the victim and the victim was not moving.
He suffered numerous head injuries, a broken nose, and cuts on his hands.
The victim says the men targeted him because they believed he was the passenger in the car that struck and killed a neighbor on June 27th.
He says he was with the man prior to the incident, but was not in the car at the time of the accident.
The June 27th crash was a hit and run that left Larry Caraway, 19, of Madison dead.
