Former Australian cricket icon Andrew Symonds dies at the age of 46

Queensland Police say they are investigating a fatal single-vehicle crash in Hervey Range, about 50 kilometers (31 miles) from Townsville.

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.

Symonds played 26 test matches for Australia between 2004 and 2008, as well as 198 one-day internationals and 14 Twenty20 internationals.

"The club is shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of former overseas star and cult hero, Andrew Symonds,".

"The thoughts of everyone at Kent Cricket are with Roy's family and friends at this desperately sad time."

Symonds is the third Australian cricket icon to die this year after Shane Warne and Rod Marsh.
