London: Former Aston Villa and Bolton defender Jlloyd Samuel died in a car crash yesterday at the age of 37, Cheshire Police confirmed.
Samuel, who also won two international caps for Trinidad and Tobago, was involved in a collision with a truck in High Legh, north-west England, after reportedly dropping off his children off at school.
“At around 7.55am (0655GMT) police were called following reports of a collision involving a van and a Range Rover,” said a statement from Cheshire Police.
“Sadly the driver of the car, Jlloyd Samuel, 37, from Lymm, died at the scene.”
Samuel was born in the city of San Fernando in the south-west of Trinidad but moved to England as a youngster. He was capped by England from Under-18 to Under-21 level and was an unused substitute for the senior international against Sweden in 2004.
