On November 3, 2018 at 11:41AM, the Lake Hallie Police Department took a report of a hit and run accident involving multiple subjects. A girl scout troop was picking up trash on CTH P near STH 29 when a black Ford F150 left the roadway and struck multiple persons in the ditch. Three juvenile females and one adult female died from a result of the crash. One juvenile female remains in critical condition at this time.
The driver fled the area, but later turned himself in. The driver was identified as an adult male, Colton Treu age 21 of Chippewa Falls. This is an ongoing investigation.
The Lake Hallie Police Department would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the families involved. We would also like to thank the City of Chippewa Falls Police Department, Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Chippewa Fire District for their assistance in this matter.
