Lake Hallie Police were also expected to release the victims' names.

CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -A vigil for the victims of Saturday's fatal hit-and-run is scheduled at 6 p.m. Sunday at Halmstad Elementary.

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

Jayna Kelley, 9; Autum Helgeson, 10; Haylee Hickle, 10, and her mother, Sara Jo Schneider, 32, were all killed when they were hit by a auto while picking up trash along a Wisconsin county highway shortly before noon Saturday, said Lake Hallie police. Killed in the crash was Andrew McMorris, 12, a seventh-grader who had just started taking flying lessons and hoped to one day earn his Eagle Scout badge. One of the girls attended Southview.


The driver fled the scene after the crash Saturday, and officials issued a call for help in locating the suspect vehicle. He has been identified as Colton Treu, 21, of Chippewa Falls.

This is an ongoing investigation.

The Lake Hallie Police Department extends it's deepest sympathies to the families involved. We would also like to thank the City of Chippewa Falls Police Department, Chippewa County Sheriff's Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Chippewa Fire District for their assistance in this matter. The driver, Colten Treu, sped away, but later surrendered to authorities. Several Girl Scouts sang songs in memory of the victims.

A fifth Girl Scout, a 10-year-old girl, remains hospitalized, but is in stable condition, according to police.


PUBLIC ASSISTANCE NEEDED - Lake Hallie PD is investigating a hit and run involving multiple victims on County P at the 29 overpass near Weber field. The vehicle of interest is believed to be a black or dark grey Ford F-150 '04-'06 with heavy front end damage and missing both side view mirrors.
