Fatal crash victim named as former bouncer Peter Carr

FRIENDS of Peter Carr have been left shocked, after it was confirmed he was the Mackay truck driver who died in the weekend's fatal accident.

Mr Carr was found not guilty of the manslaughter of Joel Namoa at the Mackay court house about two weeks ago on February 28.

His colleagues have described him as a man who was determined to move on with his life.

Two trucks collided during the Peak Downs Hwy accident and a vehicle pulling a horse float was also clipped during the crash.
