  • 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

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.

"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.

"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.

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.

Some of the girls sang songs in memory of their friends.

"Our hearts are with our Girl Scout sisters in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin", Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo said in a statement. The Star Tribune reported that the crash happened before a hill and that there are no blind spots.

"It's been very nice".

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

Golden says both the district and school crisis teams have put together support networks for students, staff and families.

The driver, identified as Colten Treu, 21, of Chippewa Falls, fled the scene, but later turned himself into police.

Police and witnesses said Treu was speeding on a highway when it veered into a shallow ditch where the girls and Schneider were picking up trash as part of an "Adopt-A-Highway" group.

Colten Treu, 21, sped off after the collision in Lake Hallie Saturday morning, but later surrendered.

Chippewa County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Jensen says Treu is being held on 13 possible charges, including four counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. It was unclear on November 4 if Treu had an attorney who could speak for him.

Police say that after Treu hit the group of Scouts, he sped off, fleeing the scene in his pickup truck.

Lake Hallie police said Monday Treu and a passenger in the pickup truck both told investigators they had intentionally been inhaling chemical vapors just prior to the crash.

Sherri Jasper, a Girl Scout board member and counselor at Halmstad Elementary School, leads the program for a candlelight vigil at the school in Chippewa Falls, Wis., on Sunday evening.
