LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - The property where a teenager died two years ago during a haunted hayride crash has been sold at auction for $1 million.

The Sun Journal (https://bit.ly/2adRLut ) reports the Harvest Hill Farm property was sold at an auction held a week ago. Owner Peter Buldoc’s corporation filed for bankruptcy a year ago facing foreclosure.

Court records say Buldoc hadn’t been able to pay the mortgage on the Mechanic Falls property since 2014. That year, a wagon tipped over during a Halloween-themed hayride, killing 17-year-old Cassidy Charette of Oakland.

The crash injured about 20 others.

The buyers at auction were companies from Long Island, New York. They are E-Layne Moulders Corp. of Amityville and Jaspan Schlesinger of Garden City.



A grand jury issued manslaughter and other charges against the farm last year.
