Emergency medical personnel gather at the scene of a hit-and-run accident Saturday Nov. 3 2018 in Lake Hallie Wisconsin that killed three girls and an adult

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

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

The crash occurred late Saturday morning as the scouts were picking up trash in a highway ditch in the village of Lake Hallie, about 95 miles east of Minneapolis.

"The Lake Hallie Police Department would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families involved", police said in a statement. Police identified him as Colton Treu, 21, of Chippewa Falls. A third girl was rushed to the hospital and died there. Sokup said the crash happened before a Treu's pickup went over a hill and, he said, there were no blind spots.

An adult was also killed and a fourth girl has been critically injured, police said in the U.S. state of Wisconsin on Saturday.

"Truly, as a community, this affects everyone one of us".
