As per the rumours among the locals, Symonds may have swerved to escape an animal who might have accidently come in front of his car, which might have been the reason why his car rolled over. However, an actual cause of the accident is not yet confirmed.
Further, an eye witness revealed a heart melting incident to the Courier Mail after Symonds’ accident. She revealed that the two dogs of the deceased didn’t want to leave him and one of them growled every time he was taken away. â€œOne of them was very sensitive and didnâ€™t want to leave him,â€ she said. â€œIt would just growl at you every time we tried to move him or go near him.â€
She also revealed how her partner tried to revive the two-time World Cup winner but the latter didn’t respond. â€œMy partner tried to get (Symonds) out of the car, to put him on to his back. He was unconscious, not responsive and had no pulse.â€
Meanwhile, former Australia opener and coach Justin Langer also paid his tribute to the deceased. â€œIn the Australian team thereâ€™d be some big egos or some things, and heâ€™d pull you straight into line. It wouldnâ€™t be with great speeches or anything, heâ€™d just look at you, or say â€˜enough of that sonâ€™,â€ he continued as quoted by Sports Tiger.
â€œHe was a great stabiliser in any team because he was so real. Like Rod Marsh, he was so real and thatâ€™s why he was such an extraordinary person that we loved so much. We wanted to look after him as well, we wanted to look after Roy because he had a few misdemeanours in his life, [had in] a lot of ways a tough time, but we wanted to hug him and look after him.â€
â€œThis one really has rocked us because he was such a great player, but at the end of the day itâ€™s much more than being a great player, itâ€™s about being a great bloke, and he is one of the brothers and this one really hurtsâ€, Langer concluded.
