Ex-Australian cricket international Andrew Symonds dies – media reports
Former Australian test cricketer Andrew Symonds has died in a car accident in Queensland, Australian media reported on Sunday.
Multiple media outlets said Symonds, who was 46, had been involved in a single vehicle incident in Hervey Range, 50km from Townsville on Saturday night.
“Early information indicates, shortly after 11 pm the car was being driven on Hervey Range Road, near Alice River Bridge when it left the roadway and rolled,” Queensland police said in a statement.
“Emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries.
“The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.”
Symonds’ death comes two months after the passing of his former team mate Shane Warne, who died of a heart attack in Thailand on 4 March.
Symonds played 26 tests, 198 ODIs and 14 Twenty20 internationals for Australia and was part of two World Cup winning sides.
He played alongside spin bowler Shane Warne and attended Warne’s memorial service in Melbourne following his shock death in Thailand in March.
In absolute shock. Andrew Symonds Rest in Peace. Love and support to all his family and friends.

Andrew Symonds was one of the most entertaining one-day cricketers I had the pleasure to watch during my childhood and into my teenage years.
Probably the batsman who would best fit the definition of ‘fearless’ at the crease.
Terrible to hear of his death this morning. RIP.

RIP Andrew Symonds. His 156* at Westpac Stadium in 2005 is one of the best innings ever on NZ soil. pic.twitter.com/onPAvGilqT
