SAWYER COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - A Hayward woman has been sentenced in Sawyer County court after a four-year-old was hit by a vehicle as she was boarding her school bus in March.

Court records show Geralynne Berg, 64, was found guilty due to a no contest plea to negligent operation of a motor vehicle. Berg was sentenced to one year of probation and a sentence was withheld. She is also required to complete 40 hours of uncompensated community service.
