A local businessman was killed in a traffic crash in western Wisconsin Monday morning.

The St. Croix County Sheriff’s Department says 74-year-old Gordon Cariveau of Oronoco was fatally injured when his van was hit by a car driven by an 81-year-old Eau Claire man that went through a stop sign at an intersection along a highway near River Falls around 11 a.m. Cariveau’s wife and the occupants of the car suffered minor injuries on the wreck.

Cariveau and his widow own the Antiques Oronoco business along Highway 52.
