Girl Scouts and Parent Killed In Hit And Run Accident

The national leader of the Girl Scouts says officials' "hearts are broken" after three Girl Scouts and an adult were killed in an apparent hit-and-run crash in Wisconsin. Girl Scouts CEO Sylvia Acevedo [[ ah-sa-VAY-doh ]] said in a statement yesterday Girl Scouts everywhere stand with those in Wisconsin to "grieve and comfort one another in the wake of this terrible tragedy."

The Girls were picking up trash along a road near Eau Claire, about an hour and-a-half east of Minneapolis, when a black Ford pickup track veered off the road and ran them down. A fourth Girl is in critical condition. Police say the 21-year-old driver , Colten Treu later surrendered.

Hundreds gathered last night for a vigil for the victims. The girls were elementary students.
