Driver Was Huffing Before Crash That Killed 4

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

Hundreds of community members gathered outside an elementary school in Wisconsin to remember three Girl Scouts and a parent who were killed in a hit-and-run crash.

Hundreds of community members gathered in 40-degree weather Sunday evening for a vigil outside Halmstad Elementary School, where some of the girls were students.

He is identified as 21-year-old Colton Treu of Chippewa Falls.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the driver of the pickup that hit the group fled the scene but is now in police custody.

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.

She said the names of the victims are expected to be released Monday by the Village of Lake Hallie Police Department.

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

"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.

Neighbors have described the spot as notoriously risky, explaining that it's an area where many people tend to speed and to exceed the 35 miles per hour speed limit.

Cormier finished the fight 4-for-4 on takedowns and outlanded Lewis 19-4 on significant strikes, according to FightMetric. No one expected Lewis to ever get this opportunity and he can derail the Cormier-Lesnar plans in one fell swoop.

"I'm always telling one of my residents that he shouldn't walk this strip at night", Spallees told the newspaper. He says Treu does not yet have an attorney.

The Chippewa Falls Police Department expressed its condolences to the victims' families and fellow scouts, describing the events as a "truly horrific incident". Truly, as a community, this affects every one of us.

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 driver sped off, leaving two girls and one woman dead. A third juvenile female was transported to the hospital where she later died.

"I was in tears this morning".

The head of Girl Scouts of the U.S. says "our hearts are broken" after three Girl Scouts and an adult were struck and killed in what authorities say was a hit-and-run crash along a rural Wisconsin highway.

Another group of girls and an adult chaperone were on the other side of the road shoulder at the time of the crash. Some of the girls were fourth graders.

And her mother "had faith, she had goal and invested herself in her children", Woldhuis added.

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District Superintendent Heidi Eliopoulos spoke during Sunday's news conference.
