AUBURN, Maine (AP) - The chief prosecutor for Androscoggin County says he expects to present witnesses to a grand jury next week who will testify about possible criminal conduct in a haunted hayride in Mechanic Falls last fall that turned deadly.

The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/1EI32ON ) reports that District Attorney Andrew Robinson declined to disclose how many witnesses he planned to call, but says it would take more than one grand jury session before a decision on criminal charges would be reached.

The Oct. 11 accident at Harvest Hills Farm killed 17-year-old Cassidy Charette and injured more than 20 others.

Authorities have said it appears that a mechanical problem caused the Jeep towing a wagon full of passengers to crash down a hill in the woods and slam into a tree.
