Public Meeting Thursday Regarding Deadly Port Clyde Crash 


Knox County authorities are holding a public meeting Thursday, March 6th to talk about the decision not to file charges in a deadly car crash in Port Clyde last summer.

9-year-old Dylan Gold from Massachusetts was killed when a driver lost control on a wharf.

Prosecutors said last month there wasn’t enough evidence to press charges against Cheryl  Torgerson of New York City.

Dylan’s mother, a younger brother and a man not related to the family were also injured.

The meeting will be at the St. George Town Office at 7 p.m.

District Attorney Geoffrey Rushlau will discuss both the decision not to prosecute and how fatal crashes are evaluated for possible criminal charges.

The Knox County Sheriff will also be there, along with the crash investigator.
