Driver was huffing before crash that killed Girl Scouts and mom

3 Girl Scouts 1 Adult Killed in Hit-and Run Crash

She said the names of the victims are expected to be released Monday by the Village of Lake Hallie Police Department. But by Saturday evening, the 21-year-old turned himself in to the authorities.

All of the children were wearing bright safety vests and were accompanied by adults, a relative who witnessed the crash said.

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

Authorities say a 21-year-old driver was intoxicated when he struck and killed three Girl Scouts and a parent and critically injured a fourth girl along a rural Wisconsin road.

Police say 21-year-old Colten Treu (TROO) had been inhaling chemical vapors before crashing his truck into the group as they picked up trash along a rural Wisconsin highway in Lake Hallie. Treu sped away from the scene, but later turned himself in. He was jailed Sunday and charged with four counts of homicide through the negligent use of a vehicle.

The Chippewa Falls Police Department expressed its condolences to the victims' families and fellow scouts, describing the events as a "truly horrific incident".

Another 10-year-old girl was struck and is in the hospital in stable condition, police said.

Teddy bears, flowers, and candles were placed on benches outside Halmstad Elementary School in Chippewa Falls, Wis., on Sunday, as a memorial to the three Girl Scouts and a parent who were struck and killed by a driver who fled the scene the day before.

Another smaller caravan earlier this year numbered only a couple hundred by the time it arrived at the Tijuana-San Diego crossing. All of the active-duty troops are scheduled to be deployed by the end of the week, but some are already in the Rio Grande Valley.

"Our hearts are broken for the girls and families of the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes", CEO Sylvia Acevedo of Girl Scouts of the U.S. said in a statement on Sunday, as vigils were held in the girls' community.

Jayna Kelley, 9; Autum Helgeson, 10; Haylee Hickle, 10, and her mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, were all killed when they were hit by a auto while picking up trash along a Wisconsin county highway shortly before noon Saturday, said Lake Hallie police.

The girls were members of Troop 3055 and were fourth-grade students in nearby Chippewa Falls, which is about 90 miles (145 kilometers) east of Minneapolis. "Truly, as a community, this affects everyone one of us".

In a message to parents, Superintendent Heidi Eliopoulos said: "This is a hard time for our students, families and staff".

'We will be providing ongoing support for both students (and) families and staff for as long as needed'.

Treu is now being held at the Chippewa County Jail.

Officials say two area Girl Scouts and one adult are dead.

A Girl Scout troop was picking up trash on CTH P near STH 29 when a black Ford F150 left the roadway and struck multiple people in the ditch. Sokup says he will be charged with four homicide counts.
