With just under two weeks before Ironman Wisconsin the news from the site of the race, Madison the Wisconsin state Capitol, is not good for cyclist.

This video taken from a city bus shows Rep. Fred Clark, a Democrat, a democrat, run a red light and smash into a cyclist who entered the intersection when his light turned green.

Clark was ticketed by Madison police for running a red light on Aug. 18.
