TOWN OF SPRINGDALE, Wis. -

A Blanchardville couple had to be extracted from their vehicle after the driver lost control, causing the vehicle to roll over.

Deane Haag, 66, and his wife, Carolyn Haag, 64, were extracted from their vehicle by Mt. Horeb rescue crews Friday afternoon off highway G in the town of Springdale.

According to a release form the sheriff's office, both were wearing seat belts and were transported to UW Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. It is believed speed and winter weather were factors in the crash.

Sheriff's deputies are asking holiday travelers to slow down and allow for extra time to get to their destinations in severe winter weather.

  • 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.
