MONROE, Wis. -

A bus transporting 16 children and a teacher’s aide was involved in a traffic crash in Monroe Thursday, according to police.

Officers were called to the intersection of 20th Street and 12th Avenue on Monroe’s south side at 8:13 a.m. for a report of a two-vehicle crash.

The Head Start bus was westbound on 20th Street when the collision occurred at an uncontrolled intersection, causing moderate to severe damage to both vehicles, according to police.

Four children, ages 7, 10, 11 and 14, were checked for injuries at the scene and no one was transported for treatment.

The bus is owned by the Dane County Parent Council and was being driven by a 57-year-old woman from Gratiot.

No citations were issued at the scene but the crash remains under investigation.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
