AUSTRALIA. (THECOUNT) — Former Australian cricketer Andrew “Roy” Symonds, has been identified as the victim in a Saturday night fatal vehicle crash.

Symonds, 46, a two-time World Cup winner, was killed in a single-vehicle crash Saturday night.


According to reports, Australian cricket captain Mark Taylor said the Symonds will be remembered as an entertainer who played the game with a carefree approach and disdain for rules and regulations.

The shocking news comes just over two months since the cricket world mourned the sudden passing of spin king Shane Warne and former Test wicket-keeper Rod Marsh, outkick reported.

Queensland Police say they are investigating a fatal single-vehicle crash, and numerous reports state emergency services attending the crash had tried to revive Symonds, but he died from his injuries — early information indicated the crash happened shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday.
