January 24, 2017 - At 3:20 am, Dane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a van vs ambulance crash on US Highway 12 in the town of Cottage Grove.

Beatrice Bender, age 37, was driving a 2012 Honda Odyssey which appears to have crossed the center line and struck a Ryan Brothers ambulance.  Bender had to be extricated from her mini-van and was transported to a local hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.  Her 4-year-old passenger was transported with her, but had no visible injuries.

The ambulance was not transporting a patient, and the ambulance crew was not injured.  US Highway 12 was completely closed for about two hours to allow for clean-up of crash debris and gas leaking from the ambulance.
