According to police, Colten Treu, 21, struck five members of the group after his pickup truck veered out of its lane, crossed the highway’s center line and ended up in the ditch. He had allegedly been inhaling chemical vapors to get high prior to the crash.

The surviving girl was hospitalized in Rochester in critical condition.

Treu left the scene but later turned himself into Lake Hallie Police about five hours after the crash. He has been charged with vehicular homicide.
