Twelve members of a Wisconsin Girl Scout troop, including seven children and fie adults, had been picking up trash in a ditch along the highway as part of a service project Saturday when a black pick-up truck driven by Treu "veered out of its lane" and crossed the center line, leaving the road entirely and entering the ditch where the Girl Scouts were working, hitting five of them, police said.
All the girls were wearing fluorescent green safety vests and were accompanied by several adults.

Nine-year-old Jayna Kelley and 10-year-old Autum Helgeson, both of Lake Hallie, were also killed. He will be charged with four counts of homicide, Lake Hallie police Sgt. Daniel Sokup said.
