Driver was huffing before crash that killed Girl Scouts and mom

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

A Wisconsin community is grieving the sudden loss of four lives, as a mother and three girl scouts were killed in a hit-and-run crash over the weekend that was allegedly the result of the driver "huffing".

Schafer was one of hundreds who gathered for a vigil outside Halmstad Elementary School in Chippewa Falls to pray for the vitcims.

The Girl Scouts were cleaning up rubbish in a grassy area between the rural road and a farm near the Hwy.

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.

Treu, 21, later confessed to police that he had been huffing chemicals to get high just before the crash, authorities said. "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". One additional 10-year-old is still in the hospital, but they say she is reported to be in stable condition.

Authorities are set to release the names of the girls and the woman who died on Monday.
