Police arrest Joshua McCarthy, multiple felony offenses

Published on

On Monday, December 7, 2020, Rochester Police arrested Joshua McCarthy, 33, of Rochester, charging him with two counts of Negligent Homicide, Witness Tampering x3, and Falsifying Physical Evidence, all Felony level offenses.  The arrest and charges stem from a September 19, 2020 motor vehicle accident on Washington St that left two people dead.

On Saturday, September 19th around 9:15 pm, Rochester Police, Fire, and Frisbie EMS responded to Washington St, near Fillmore Blvd, after receiving calls regarding a serious two-car accident with injuries and entrapment.

Police believe a 2010 Dodge Journey, driven by James Hughes Sr, 64, of Barrington, was traveling west on Washington St when a 2017 Chevy Silverado, driven by Joshua McCarthy, 33, of Rochester, was exiting Fillmore Blvd and turning onto Washington St when the two vehicles collided. James Hughes Sr. died on the way to the hospital and his passenger, wife Suzanne Hughes, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Two passengers in the Silverado were transported to Frisbie Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while neither McCarthy nor a third passenger in the Silverado were transported.

McCarthy was released on $10,000 PR bail and will be arraigned in Strafford County Superior Court at a date/time to be determined.
