MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - An allegedly drunk driver kept going after a crash that left the car’s airbags deployed and the bumper dragging Tuesday morning, Madison police say.

The driver then allegedly kept driving down Fair Oaks Ave. until someone called police, saying the car was swerving across the road.
