Grand Jury Seeing Evidence in Hayride Death

The Oct. 11 accident at Harvest Hills Farm killed one and injured more than 20 others

The Androscoggin County district attorney says a grand jury will continue seeing evidence into June in the case of a fatal Maine haunted hayride.

District Attorney Andrew Robinson says the grand jury has viewed evidence about the possibility of criminal conduct related to the Mechanic Falls hayride that killed 17-year-old Cassidy Charette in October. Robinson says the jury will see more evidence in early June. That is the earliest the jury could begin deliberations about the possibility of an indictment.

The Oct. 11 accident at Harvest Hills Farm also injured more than 20 other people. Authorities have said it appears a mechanical problem caused the accident. A Jeep towing a wagon full of passengers crashed down a hill in the woods, slamming into a tree.
