3 killed in 2-vehicle crash in northeast Wisconsin


TOWNSHIP OF OCONTO FALLS, Wis. (AP) -- Three elderly people are dead after a two-vehicle crash in northeastern Wisconsin.

The Oconto County Sheriff's Office says the crash was reported just after 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the Township of Oconto Falls.

According to the sheriff's office, an 82-year-old Lena woman was driving north on a county road when she failed to stop for a stop sign at State Highway 22. Her vehicle was struck broadside by a van driven by a 35-year-old Oconto Falls man.

Three people in the woman's vehicle were killed -- a 91-year-old Lena man, an 89-year-old Oconto Falls woman and a 96-year-old Oconto Falls woman. The 82-year-old driver was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

None of the five people in the van were seriously hurt. Names of the victims were not released.
