CHP collects teddy bears to comfort children in crashes

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- For four hours people in the community dropped off teddy bears to CHP at the Starbucks near Herndon and Highway 99 in Northwest Fresno.

The stuffed animals will be kept in patrol cars and handed to kids involved in tragic incidents or collisions.

CHP says they are working to plan another drive similar to this one before Christmas to take in even more donations.

Officers hope the teddy bears will be a source of comfort during emergency situations.
