MADISON (WKOW) -- A bicyclist is in the hospital with serious injuries after he was hit by a car on Madison's north side.

But fortunately, Fire Rescue was here as always in an extremely quick manner and were able to do that as quick as they can," said Madison Police Sgt. Bernie Gonzalez.
The fire department used inflatable bags to lift the car and then pull out the bicyclist. The man was flown to UW Hospital. Officials have not released his name.
