  • 3 Girl Scouts, 1 Woman Killed in Wisconsin Hit-and-Run

The community gathered Sunday night to remember four lives taken suddenly in a hit-and-run crash, reports CBS Minnesota.

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - The three girls killed attended Halmstad Elementary School and Southview Elementary school in Chippewa Falls.

New information Monday morning, we now know the names of the Girl Scout troop members and a mother killed in a hit-and-run crash in Lake Hallie, Wis., on Saturday. 29 overpass, chattering and laughing when the Ford F-150 ploughed into them.

Girl Scouts sing as hundreds of community members turn out in the rain Sunday evening for a candlelight vigil at Halmstad Elementary School in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, in remembrance of three fourth grade Girl Scouts and a parent who died Saturday, after being struck by a pickup truck while their troop was picking up trash along a rural highway.

Treu and his passenger, who also turned himself in, allegedly told police that right before the crash they "had been intentionally inhaling chemical vapors", also known as "huffing". "We will be providing ongoing support for both students (and) families and staff for as long as needed". Authorities say the 21-year-old man driving the pickup later surrendered. A makeshift memorial of teddy bears, balloons and candles was set up on two wooden benches.

"Our hearts are with our Girl Scout sisters in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin", Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a statement.

Sgt. Daniel Sokup of the Lake Hallie Police Department said that Treu will be charged with four counts of homicide through the negligent use of a vehicle.

Police say the 21-year-old driver sped off but later surrendered. "Girl Scouts everywhere stand with you during this hard time".

Authorities have identified the three Girl Scouts and a parent killed after they were struck by a pickup truck along a rural Wisconsin highway.

The victims were struck Saturday morning while picking up trash in Lake Hallie, which is 90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Minneapolis and just south of Chippewa Falls.

The suspected driver, 21-year-old Colten Treu of Chippewa Falls, fled but later turned himself in several hours later, police said.
