MECHANIC FALLS, Maine (AP) - The Maine grand jury hearing evidence on whether criminal charges should be brought after the death of a teen in a haunted hayride crash will meet for a third session.

The Androscoggin District Attorney Andrew Robinson tells WCSH (http://on.wcsh6.com/1IvFgIV ) that a third session is “rare.”

The grand jury is weighing criminal charges after17-year-old Cassidy Charette was killed during a haunted hayride at Harvest Hills in Mechanic Falls last October.

The accident also injured more than 20 people. Authorities said it appears a mechanical problem caused the accident.

A Jeep towing a wagon full of passengers careened down a hill into the woods and slammed into a tree.

The grand jury first met on the case in May, held a second session last week and is expected to reconvene in July.
