MADISON, Wis. -

The Dane County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the woman killed Friday morning in a single-vehicle crash on County Road PB as Devan Gunderson-VanWitzenburg, 22, of Verona.

Deputies and emergency crews from Verona responded to County Road PB at 3:22 a.m. for a report of an accident. Responders arrived to find the vehicle on its roof on the west side of the road. VanWitzenburg was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said they believe speed was a contributing factor in the crash. They believe VanWitzenburg lost control of the vehicle and it rolled several times before landing in the field.

The case is still under investigation, the medical examiner said.

  • 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.
