The driver, identified as Colton Treu, 21, from Chippewa Falls, has since turned himself in to police and is expected to be charged with four counts of homicide through the negligent use of a vehicle.

There is unspeakable sadness in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Investigators say a fourth remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Troop 3055's regional council, the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, expressed its condolences on Facebook and said a vigil will be held on November 4 evening at the girls' school.

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.

Three girls were killed and a fourth was in critical condition Saturday after the driver of a pickup truck struck members of a Girl Scout troop picking up trash on the side of a Wisconsin road, police said.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the driver of the pickup that hit the group fled the scene but is now in police custody.

"I'm always telling one of my residents that he shouldn't walk this strip at night", Spallees told the newspaper.

They were all wearing bright lime-green safety vests and were accompanied by several adults at the time.

Almost 15 girls, along with adults, were picking up trash when a 21-year-old man went off the road and hit them with his pickup truck. Truly, as a community, this affects every one of us. A third Girl Scout was transported to a hospital where she later died, Sokup said.

"Just a fun-loving girl, Girl Scout". The school district said she was a parent.

At both schools Sunday, counselors were on hand to console students, staff and parents. "There are a lot of people hurting on behalf of our children right now", Chippewa Falls Superintendent Dr. Heidi Eliopolous said.

Counselors, faith leaders and trained school staff would be available at least through November 5 at two elementary schools, according to Chippewa Falls School District Superintendent Heidi Eliopoulos.

Sergeant Daniel Sokup of the Lake Hallie Police said the stretch of road had no blind spots, with the crash occurring just before an incline in the road.

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.
