MILWAUKEE (AP) – Authorities are attributing at least four deaths in Wisconsin to the weekend snowstorm.

In central Wisconsin, Marshfield Police Chief Gary Jepsen said Monday a 37-year-old man died when his vehicle became stranded and he tried to walk home in the cold early Sunday.

In western Wisconsin, 58-year-old Kennenth Swanson of rural River Falls was killed when a metal shed collapsed from the heavy snow, pinning him under debris and about 3 feet of snow.

Also Saturday, 79-year-old Clifford Larson was blowing snow at the end of his driveway in St. Croix County’s Woodville when he was struck and killed by a snow plow.

In southern Wisconsin, Alejandria Abaunza died when the SUV in which she was a passenger, slipped off Interstate 39 near Milton and struck several trees.
