Court date set for lawsuit over 2018 hit and run
CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - A nearly month-long trial is scheduled in a lawsuit filed by the family of one of the girl scouts hurt in a hit and run crash in the village of Lake Hallie in 2018.
Madalyn Zwiefelhofer’s family filed the suit in 2021 in Chippewa County Court against the driver, Colten Treu, along with some insurance companies and several other businesses. In court documents, the family says Madalyn has permanent injuries from the crash, which have created medical expenses and lost wages. It does not specify the amount of money the family is asking for.
Treu crashed into Girl Scout Troop 3055 on Nov. 3, 2018, killing four people in addition to causing Madalyn’s injuries. He was sentenced to 54 years in prison.
The trial is scheduled to begin Feb. 20, 2024 and end on March 15th.
