Coalinga Family Killed in Crash Identified
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Criminal charges are pending against the driver who caused a head on crash that killed three family members Tuesday. 77-year-old Donald Fisher, 74-year-old Arlene Fisher, and their 55-year-old son, Brian Fisher, all died when a vehicle crossed over a center divider on Jensen Avenue. The couple moved to Coalinga from New York about ten years ago to be near another son who works at the Pleasant Valley State Prison. Neighbors tell Action News Brian Fisher moved in with them less than a year ago.
Community members say Donald Fisher was an active volunteer with several organizations, including the R.C. Baker Memorial Museum. "He used to come down and volunteer his time and his energy. He was cleaning and helping and doing whatever he could because he was so passionate about the museum," said museum curator Stephanie McHaney.
The California Highway Patrol says the driver of the other vehicle, 32-year-old Manuel Casillas, will face criminal charges related to the crash. At this point in the investigation, it's unknown whether those charges will be misdemeanor or felony.
