A hit-and-run crash in Wisconsin killed three Girl Scouts and a woman, and left another girl in critical condition, police said.

The group was picking up litter Saturday morning in a ditch in Lake Hallie, about 95 miles east of Minneapolis, when a black Ford F-150 pickup truck struck them, police said.

The driver, identified as Colton Treu, 21, of Chippewa Falls, fled the scene and later turned himself in, the Lake Hallie Police Department said in a press release.

Treu will be charged with four counts of homicide through negligent use of a vehicle.
