  • Emergency medical personnel gather at the scene of a hit-and-run accident Saturday Nov. 3 2018 in Lake Hallie Wisconsin that killed three girls and an adult

THREE Girl Scouts have been run over and killed while picking up rubbish on the side of a rural road in Wisconsin. The driver was identified as an adult male, Colton Treu age 21 of Chippewa Falls.

"This is a frightful reminder of our nations epidemic of self-indulging with substance abuse without regard of the consequences", Lake Hallie Police Chief Cal D. Smokowicz said in a statement Monday. It was not immediately clear what charges he could face.

Colten Treu (TROO) made his initial court appearance Monday morning in Chippewa County. Hickle's mother, 32-year-old mother, Sara Jo Schneider, was also killed.

The group of girls and adults were collecting litter from a ditch near highway 29 overpass on Saturday morning.

After turning himself in to police, Treu admitted to police that he and the passenger in his vehicle had intentionally inhaled chemicals, which is commonly referred to as "huffing", just prior to the incident.

The fourth-graders from the Chippewa Falls School District were picking up trash along County Highway P as part of a community service project when they were struck.

Both Grande and Davidson met on SNL , and they were often criticized for their fast engagement, which lasted five months. Then Grande proceeded to drag him to hell.

At 11:41 a.m., a pickup truck left the road and went into the ditch, striking the five victims. "The Girl Scout Movement everywhere stands with our sister Girl Scouts in Wisconsin to grieve and comfort one another in the wake of this awful tragedy".

"The Lake Hallie Police Department would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families involved", police said in a statement. Officials say a 10-year-old girl is still battling critical injuries in the hospital. "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".

But Cecily Spallees, a personal care attendant at a nearby group home, told the newspaper that drivers regularly speed along that stretch of road, which quickly changes from a 55-mph to a 35-mph zone.

It is expected the 21-year-old will be 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".

As a western Wisconsin community grieves the deaths of three Girl Scouts and a parent who were struck by a pickup truck, authorities still haven't released the names of the victims or a fourth girl who survived.
