4-year-old hit while boarding bus in Wisconsin, driver cited

A 4-year-old was hit by a vehicle while boarding a school bus Tuesday morning in Sawyer County, Wisconsin.

The Sawyer County Sheriff's Office said deputies were notified of a crash in the Village of Radisson, about 80 miles north of Eau Claire, at about 7:13 a.m.

Initial investigation indicates a GMC Terrain, driven by 63-year-old Geralynne A. Berg, of Hayward, was driving east on State Highway 70. As it approached the school bus near Martin Street, Berg passed the bus on the right side, hitting one of the students boarding it.

The sheriff's office said the 4-year-old girl was under the front of Berg's vehicle when it stopped. The girl was taken to a hospital and later released.

Berg was taken into custody for recklessly causing injury and issued multiple citations, the sheriff's office said.

The crash remains under investigation.
