Hundreds gather for vigil for Girl Scouts, parent killed in Wisconsin crash

The two children were Girl Scouts from the area and local media is reporting that two other children were injured.

This photo provided by the Chippewa County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin shows Colten Treu, who is accused of striking and killing three Girl Scouts and a parent and critically injuring a fourth girl near Chippewa Falls, Wis., Nov. 3, 2018. He is expected to be charged with four counts of homicide.

Two girls and a chaperone were killed on the roadside, according to the Lake Hallie Police Department, which is investigating.

The victims were picking up trash in the ditches of County Highway P when they were struck Saturday about 11:30 a.m. Police have arrested 21-year-old Colten Treu, of Chippewa Falls.

Police say they were hit over the weekend when the pickup veered off a rural highway in Lake Hallie as they collected trash along a rural highway and then sped away.

The letter was signed by a Jane Doe from Oceanside, Calif. "Such acts are not only unfair; they are potentially illegal". Then in early October, Munro-Leighton said she was responsible for the letter and repeated again, " Kavanaugh raped me".


The victims were struck Saturday morning while picking up trash along a rural road in Lake Hallie, 90 miles east of Minneapolis and just south of Chippewa Falls, where the girls were fourth-graders at Halmstad and Southview elementary schools. Sergeant Dan Sokup says one victim was air lifted to the hospital and one victim was taken by ambulance.

A 21-year-old Chippewa Falls man will be facing 4 counts of Homicide Through Negligent Use of a Vehicle following the fatal hit-and-run that occurred in Lake Hallie, WI on November 3, 2018, according Sgt. Sokup of the Lake Hallie Police Department when speaking with the Associated Press.

The driver fled, but turned himself in later.

Treu and his unidentified passenger both admitted to "huffing" chemicals prior to the crash, police said.

The crash remains under investigation.

Girl Scouts chief executive Sylvia Acevedo paid tribute to the girls and the woman in a statement on Sunday, saying "our hearts are broken" over the tragedy. Hinkle's mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, was also killed.

"The area is not an unsafe area", he added. "Girl Scouts everywhere stand with your during this hard time". No words can ease the pain of a tragedy of this magnitude. "It is with profound sadness that we join together in mourning the tragic loss of our Girl Scout sisters".

In Wisconsin, the school, the community of Scouts and most of Chippewa were preparing to attend a memorial at 6 p.m. Sunday at the elementary school the three girls who were killed attended. "These girls were out there trying to do some good and this is what happened".

Counselors, psychologists, therapy dogs and faith leaders will again be at the two elementary schools where the victims were students.
