Relatives struggle with hit-and-run deaths of Girl Scouts

Man Was 'Huffing' Just Before Crash That Killed 3 Girl Scouts and Adult

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

The youngster, who has not been named, told a court Monday that she was holding the little boy at a licenced day care center when she accidentally lost her grip on him.

The 11 charges filed against Colten Treu on Tuesday include four counts of vehicular homicide and four counts of a hit-and-run resulting in death.

The 21-year-old driver who allegedly killed three Wisconsin Girl Scouts and one of their mothers over the weekend has reportedly admitted to inhaling chemicals prior to the crash.

Police said she was in stable condition Monday. The western Wisconsin community on Sunday was grieving the deaths of three Girl Scouts and a parent who were collecting trash Saturday along a rural highway when police say a pickup truck veered off the road and hit them before speeding away.

Defense attorney Kirby Harless asked for a smaller bond, saying the girl has lived her whole life in the area and there is no reason to think she wouldn't attend a future court hearing. Girl Scouts sang songs in memory of the victims, who were members of Troop 3055. Police say he and his passenger, who is also in custody, said they'd been "huffing" or inhaling vapors from an aerosol cleaner before the crash, something prosecutors had argued in court.

In front of Halmstad Elementary, teddy bears, balloons, candles and a bouquet of flowers sat on two wooden benches Sunday afternoon.

"Our hearts are broken for the girls and families of the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes", Sylvia Acevedo of Girl Scouts of the U.S. said in a statement.

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

"We partner with Real Living, so any student in our district, no matter what the circumstance gets 4 free counseling sessions for themselves, as well as every single member of their family", said Eliopoulos.
