Family Of Girl Killed In Hayride Crash Settles Lawsuit

The family of a teenage girl who was killed in a hayride accident has settled its lawsuit.

A lawyer representing 17-year-old Cassidy Charette’s family says the suit against several parties, including the farm owner who operated the hayride, has been settled. The family told the Portland Press Herald that the money awarded will support the ShineOnCass Foundation, that encourages young people to do volunteer work in their communities. The amount of the settlement has not been disclosed.

Charette died on October 11, 2014 while on a Halloween-themed hayride at the Harvest Hill Farms in Mechanic Falls. The jeep towing the hayride lost its brakes and rolled down a steep gravel path. It then hit a tree and overturned, injuring more than a dozen passengers. Cassidy was the only one killed in that crash.
