Bond issued in fatal hit-and-run crash in Lake Hallie

MILWAUKEE - Relatives of a Girl Scout and her mother who were killed in a hit-and-run crash in Wisconsin that also claimed the lives of two other girls struggled Monday to come to terms with their sudden, heartbreaking loss, saying "we all expect them to come back".

Another girl, 10, was injured and hospitalized.

A young driver was inhaling chemical vapours, or huffing, just prior to fatally striking a group of Girl Scouts who had been picking up rubbish along a rural Wisconsin highway, police said. He will be charged with four counts of homicide, Lake Hallie police Sgt. Daniel Sokup said.

All members of the group - seven children and five adults - "were in the ditch, not on the pavement or gravel shoulder at the time of the crash" and were "wearing green highly visible safety vests", police said.

Lake Hallie police said Monday that the deceased were: 9-year-old Jayna Kelley and 10-year-old Autum Helgeson, both of Lake Hallie, and 10-year-old Haylee Hickle and her 32-year-old mother, Sara Jo Schneider, from the Town of Lafayette.

This investigation is far from over and any persons who may have witnessed this accident are encouraged to contact the Lake Hallie Police Department. Authorities said Treu sped off after the collision, but surrendered hours later.
