Driver to be sen­tenced

The Weekend Post - - News -

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.
