Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in bloodstream

Miami Marlins baseball star pitcher Jose Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in his bloodstream when he was killed after his boat crashed into a jetty in September, toxicology reports reveal. However, it is not clear who was driving the boat when the accident occurred.

Fernandez and two of his friends died on September 24th in the Miami Beach accident.

Miami-Dade County Associate Medical Examiner Kenneth Hutchins reported that Fernandez, Emilio Jesus Macias and Eduardo Rivero all suffered blunt force injuries to head and body. Macias and Rivero had blood-alcohol levels below the state’s legal limit. Rivero and Fernandez had cocaine in their system.

The 32-foot SeaVee was apparently speeding when it hit the rocks and capsized on the north jetty at Government Cut, near Miami Beach.

It was apparently heading south at the time. A routine US Coast Guard patrol spotted the wreckage at about 3.15am Sunday on September 25th.
