PELHAM – Family and friends of Hudson resident Joshua Nolette are mourning the loss of the 31-year-old man as two other people involved in the two-car crash that claimed Nolette’s life continue to recover in local hospitals.

Nolette, according to police, was found deceased by first responders when they arrived at the scene shortly before 5:30 p.m. Friday. Police said Nolette was found inside the 2015 Honda Civic he was driving west on Keyes Hill Road when the crash occurred.

His passenger, Amanda Acampora, 23, of Manchester, sustained serious injuries, police said, and was treated at the scene before being transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 2009 GMC Sierra 2500 pickup, was identified by police as Callen Aubry, 24, of Pelham. He also sustained serious injuries, police said, and was also transported to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for treatment.

Police said that while Acampora’s and Aubry’s injuries are considered serious, both are expected to make full recoveries.

They said that Acampora was the only one of the three who was wearing a seatbelt.

The crash occurred in front of 66 Keyes Hill Road, just east of the Pelham-Hudson town line and near the intersection of Keyes Hill Road and Countryside Drive.

Police said a preliminary investigation determined that Nolette was driving west, toward Hudson, when his vehicle crossed over the double yellow line. His Civic then collided head-on with Aubrey’s truck, which witnesses told police was traveling “with the flow of traffic … in its lane,” police said.

The Hudson police Technical Accident Reconstruction (TAR) Unit conducted an on-scene investigation, and Pelham Corporal Michael Kasiske continues to investigate as well.

Police ask that anyone who witnessed the crash, or who has additional relevant information, to contact Kasiske at police headquarters at 635-2411.
