A young driver was inhaling chemical vapours, or huffing, just prior to striking and killing three Girl Scouts and a mother and critically injuring a fourth girl who had been picking up trash along a rural Wisconsin highway, police said Monday.

Police say a 21-year-old driver of a pick-up truck veered off the road and hit the troop.

The 21-year-old Treu graduated from Chippewa Falls High School in 2014.

The 21-year-old is in custody and is expected to be charged with four counts of homicide through the negligent use of a vehicle, Mr Sokup told the Star-Tribune.

Hundreds of community members gathered outside an elementary school in Chippewa Falls, Wis., on Sunday night to remember three Girl Scouts and a parent who were killed in a hit-and-run crash over the weekend.

A fourth girl was battling critical injuries.

Two small groups of Girl Scouts and their adult chaperones wore bright green safety vests Saturday as they walked along both sides of County Highway P, which they had adopted as a community service project.

Treu and his unidentified passenger both admitted to "huffing" chemicals prior to the crash, police said.

Golden added the district and school crisis teams assembled support networks for students, staff and families.

Three girl scouts have been killed after they were hit by a truck while picking up litter. The driver, Colten Treu, sped away, but later surrendered to authorities. Two other children were injured. A third girl was rushed to the hospital and died there.

"Our hearts are broken for the girls and families of the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes", Sylvia Acevedo, CEO of Girl Scouts of the United States of America, said in a statement Sunday.

"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. He took off but later turned himself in.

Girl Scouts chief executive Sylvia Acevedo paid tribute to the girls and the woman in a statement on Sunday, saying "our hearts are broken" over the tragedy. Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to contact the Lake Hallie Police Department. The children involved were area Girl Scouts.

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -The Lake Hallie Police Department is searching for a vehicle after a fatal hit-and-run involving multiple victims in Chippewa County.

Colten Treu, 21, turned himself in to police hours after the crash in Lake Hallie that also sent another girl to the hospital, the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram reports.
