Driver to be sentenced
A KOAH man will face court for sentencing next year over a fatal crash in Mareeba that killed two mates in July 2017.
James Henry Hannan has pleaded guilty to the summary charges of driving without due care and attention and driving with drugs in his system.
His matter was due for sentencing in Cairns Magistrates Court this week but has been adjourned to January 23.
At 6am on July 1 last year a Toyota LandCruiser left Davies Creek Rd and crashed into a tree near a camp ground at the Tablelands national park.
The crash killed two unrestrained passengers – Mungali Sheriff, 21, of Kuranda, and Abel Friend of Mareeba, 28.
