Cricketer Symonds killed in Qld car crash

By AAP

Former Australian Test cricketer Andrew Symonds has been killed in a Queensland car crash.

The 46-year-old was involved in a single-vehicle crash late on Saturday.

Queensland Police are investigating the crash, which occurred at Hervey Range, about 50km from Townsville.

“Early information indicates, shortly after 11pm the car was being driven on Hervey Range Road, near Alice River Bridge when it left the roadway and rolled,” a police statement read.

“Emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries.”

Symonds played 26 Tests for Australia and was a crowd favourite in the short format game as a big-hitting allrounder.

In recent years Symonds had worked as a TV commentator for Fox Sports and was a regular on the microphone for Big Bash League broadcasts.

Symonds’ death follows the shock demise of cricketing peer Shane Warne who died in March in Thailand.
