Double fatality: Man, 22, faces charges
A 22-year-old man is due to face court on serious charges after a single vehicle traffic crash in which two men died at Mareeba last year.
The tragedy occurred on Davies Creek Road near Mareeba around 6am on July 1 when a utility left the road and crashed into a tree.
Two men, aged 21 and 28 from Kuranda and Mareeba, who police will allege were passengers in the vehicle at the time, died at the scene.
A third man was transported to hospital for treatment.
A 22-year-old Koah man has been issued with a notice to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on June 12, where he will face a charge of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death whilst adversely affected by an intoxicating substance.
The charges follow an investigation by the Cairns Forensic Crash Unit.
