PLAINFIELD, Wis. (AP) — A small village in central Wisconsin is rallying to support the family of a kindergartner struck and killed just before boarding a school bus.

Six-year-old Maryana Kranz died and her 4-year-old sister was injured Monday morning along Highway 73 in the town of Oasis near Plainfield.

Waushara County sheriff's officials say a 76-year-old man drove his pickup around the stopped bus and struck the girls.

Tri-County Area Schools says area residents have provided generous support, condolences and prayers for the family. A fund has been created at Portage County Bank in Plainfield. And, a benefit will be held Feb. 29 at Ponderosa Pines in Bancroft.
