Train death cricketer was high on drugs

WESTMINSTER Coroner's Court has returned a verdict of accidental death in the case of young cricket star Tom Maynard.

The Surrey batsman was found dead near the Wimbledon Park station of the London Underground shortly after 5am on Monday, June 18, last year. The inquest heard he was struck by a train as he attempted to flee police after driving while on a cocktail of drink and drugs.

The 23-year-old suffered multiple injuries caused by the impact of the train and from touching a live electric railway line, the court heard.

He was stopped by police less than an hour before his death when his black Mercedes was seen driving erratically.
