Bay State man involved in Hampstead fatal crash attends hearing
PLAISTOW -- A Massachusetts man charged in a fatal crash in Hampstead made a brief court appearance Monday, but will return next month for a probable cause hearing.
Carlos M. Herrera, 30, of 123 Oak St., Clinton, Mass., was expected to face a probable cause hearing Monday in the 10th Circuit Court in Plaistow, but the hearing was postponed to Nov. 5.
Herrera is charged with negligent homicide after he allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Emerson Avenue and Route 121 in Hampstead on July 28.
Herrera's 2011 Hyundai Elantra collided with a 2005 Nissan Xterra driven by Althea Hicks, 42, of Londonderry. She later died from her injuries.
Herrera remains free on $25,000 personal recognizance bail.
