MAN MOWS DOWN GIRLS SCOUTS AND DRIVES AWAY
Sadly Mariah Logan is not an isolated case. In November 2018 a group of Girl Scouts were victimised by a hit-and-run driver.
The Girl Scouts were picking up trash from a ditch in western Wisconsin when they were mowed down by a man driving a pickup truck.
Two of the girls and a woman accompanying them were pronounced dead at the scene, while a third girl passed away at the hospital.
The man who ran them over ran away, but later handed himself in to the police. He has been identified as 21-year-old Colton Treu, of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and will be charged with four counts of murder through the negligent use of a vehicle.
