Girl scouts killed by truck while litter picking on roadside

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

Four people, including three Girl Scouts were killed in a hit-and-run vehicle crash in Wisconsin on Saturday, police said. The fourth girl was transported to a hospital in critical condition.

Three girls and a woman were killed Saturday morning when a truck driven by a Wisconsin man struck them as their Girl Scout troop was picking up trash along a roadway.

Emergency medical personnel gather at the scene of a hit-and-run accident Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, in Lake Hallie, Wis., that killed two girls and an adult. "The Girl Scout Movement everywhere stands with our sister Girl Scouts in Wisconsin to grieve and comfort one another in the wake of this bad tragedy".

The Ford F-150 was traveling northbound when it crossed over a lane of traffic and into the ditch, where it struck the group, Lake Hallie police Sgt. Daniel Sokup said.

At both schools Sunday, counselors were on hand to console students, staff and parents.

The 21-year-old driver, Colten Treu of Chippewa Falls, sped off but later surrendered.

In a statement, the school district wrote, "this is a hard time for our students, families and staff". The Girl Scout Troop members - fourth graders at Halmstad Elementary School in Chippewa Falls - were accompanied by several adults and were wearing bright safety vests. Approximately 15 people were out picking up trash in total when the incident occured.

It was unclear it Treu was distracted in the moments leading up to the crash, Sergeant Sokup told Minnesota's Star Tribune.

Sokup said Treu will be charged with four counts of homicide through the negligent use of a vehicle.

Authorities are set to release the names of the girls and the woman who died on Monday.

"The area is not an unsafe area", he said.

Sokup said it was not immediately known if there were other factors that might have led the driver to leave the road.

The local Girl Scout council's Facebook posts also noted that a candlelight vigil for the three Girl Scouts and the adult volunteer will take place on Sunday evening at Halmstad Elementary School.
