St. Croix County recorded two deaths Saturday tied to heavy snowfall in western Wisconsin. An elderly Woodville man was killed when he was struck by a municipal plow and a rural Hudson man died after the roof of a livestock shelter collapsed, pinning him beneath.

Clifford M. Larson, 79, of Woodville, was blowing snow at the end of his driveway at 2:15 p.m. when he was backed into and struck by a Village of Woodville plow truck, operated by Steven E. Nygaard, 56, of rural Baldwin.
