HORSHAM, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia man is charged with homicide and driving under the influence in a December crash that killed his friend.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele says 26-year-old Corey Adam Mitchell, of Souderton, was driving in Horsham Township on Dec. 27 with his passenger and long-time friend Erik Detweiler.

Prosecutors say Mitchell’s headlights were off when he turned left at a red light and drove into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer. They say his blood-alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit.

Twenty-five-year-old Detweiler, who had been living in California, was killed.

Mitchell is also charged with endangering another person and traffic violations.

Steele says Mitchell will turn himself into authorities next week.
