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.

Lake Hallie police Sgt. Daniel Sokup said the pickup, a black Ford F-150, crossed a lane Saturday morning and veered into a roadside ditch, striking the victims.

The 21-year-old Treu graduated from Chippewa Falls High School in 2014.

Treu was being held in the Chippewa County Jail on 13 possible charges, including four counts of intoxicated use of a motor vehicle, Chippewa County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Jensen said.

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.

The crash happened late Saturday morning as the girls were picking up litter in a ditch in Lake Hallie, a village about 95 miles (153 kilometers) east of Minneapolis. A fourth girl suffered critical injuries and is still being treated in the hospital.




Girl Scout troops are asking people to wear green on Monday to support Chippewa Falls Troop 3055. Both men made statements to police in which they admitted to "huffing" chemicals prior to the accident.

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 vehicle while picking up trash along a Wisconsin county highway shortly before noon Saturday, said Lake Hallie police. A passenger in Treu's truck also surrendered to police in Eau Claire, but that suspect had not been identified, the newspaper reported. Two other scouts were injured. Two of the girls, and a woman who was supervising the group, were pronounced dead at the scene.

"Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes asks that you please keep the Nokomis Service Area volunteers and families in your thoughts and prayers as they grapple with this senseless loss", the organization said in a statement. Two girls and a parent died at the scene.

The Lake Hallie Police Department would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families involved. The other was taken to the hospital by ambulance. An investigation and search for the vehicle is underway.

Tire tracks marked with spray paint lead to where a vehicle struck three Girl Scouts and an an adult chaperone, November 4, 2018, in Lake Hallie, Wis.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to contact the Chippewa County Communications Center.
