A Lower Makefield man who drove drunk and killed another motorist on Lincoln Highway has been sentenced to state prison. He will spend between 41 months and 11 1/2 years behind bars.

Fisher pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle while DUI earlier this year.

Charles Fisher, 25, had a BAC of .10 the evening of June 2, 2018. Fisher crashed his Ford Escape into another vehicle, fatally injuring Michael Carlino, 65.

First responders transported Carlino, of Bensalem, to the hospital, where he passed away.

Witnesses say Fisher’s vehicle was drifting between lanes on Lincoln Highway before it crossed and hit Carlino head-on, according to police.

Court documents show Fisher had two passengers in the vehicle with him. They initially insisted Fisher was not the driver, but eventually confessed. The Lower Makefield man had reportedly been drinking throughout the day.
