Man Was 'Huffing' Just Before Crash That Killed 3 Girl Scouts and Adult

Driver was 'huffing' chemical vapours before crash that killed four in Wisconsin, say police

A 10-year-old girl faces charges in the death of a 6-month-old baby after allegedly stomping on the boy's head.

The girl appeared in Chippewa County Circuit Court on November 5, The Associated Press reported.

A 10-year-old girl has been charged with killing a six-month-old baby boy at a daycare centre.

Judy Schneider, the mother of Sara Jo Schneider and Haylee's grandmother, told The Associated Press in an interview Monday that after the crash she wondered, "What was the driver thinking?"

Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk said that he then hit his head on a footstool and started crying so she panicked and started stamping on his head. New reports said she was being charged as an adult under state law related to the incident on October 30, but the case could later be transferred to juvenile court.

One additional injured girl (age 10) is still hospitalized and is reported to be in stable condition at this time. Police told Fox News, "The truck failed to stop and render aid, but instead left the scene of the crash". Authorities had removed her from the custody of her biological parents in September.

The victims were among seven children and five adults who were working in the ditches along the roadway.

A western Wisconsin pickup truck driver was drunk when he hit and killed three Girl Scouts and a parent picking up litter over the weekend along a western Wisconsin highway, authorities said Monday.

The 21-year-old had nothing to say in court Tuesday, while appearing by video from the jail.

Treu was huffing an air duster, according to prosecutors, and when the passenger noticed Treu veering, he corrected the steering wheel.

A sheriff's deputy investigating the accident traced a fluid trail that led to the house where Treu lived with the truck's passenger, according to the complaint.

Lake Hallie Police Department Chief Cal Smokowicz did not specify in his release what chemicals Treu admitted to inhaling before the crash.

Chippewa County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Jensen says Treu is being held on 13 possible charges, including four counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.
