AUBURN, Maine (AP) - The district attorney prosecuting a fatal Maine haunted hayride crash says the driver was indicted for only reckless conduct, a misdemeanor.

Androscoggin County District Attorney Andrew Robinson originally announced that David Brown was indicted on three felony charges: manslaughter, aggravated assault and driving to endanger. But he said Thursday that he was mistaken and that Brown faces only the misdemeanor charge.

A mechanic also was charged with reckless conduct while Harvest Hills Farm Inc. was charged with several felonies, including manslaughter.

The crash claimed the life of 17-year-old Cassidy Charette of Oakland. Another 20 people were hurt during the October hayride in Mechanic Falls.
