Driver of hayride that killed one, injured many found not guilty of crash

A verdict has been reached in a deadly hayride crash in Maine that killed a 17-year-old girl and injured 20 other people two years ago.

A jury has found David Brown, the driver who was towing a trailer full of mostly teen-aged passengers when both the jeep and trailer sped down a hill and crashed, not guilty. He had been facing charges of reckless conduct.

Brown himself was the last witness on the stand.

He told jurors he had no indication that the brakes on the jeep he was driving were about to fail.
