He had dropped his children off at the school just before his car collided head-on with another vehicle.


37-year-old Jlloyd Samuel died on Tuesday May 15 after his car was involved in an accident in High Legh, Cheshire during peak hour traffic.

As reported by BBC, Samuel had been returning home for the morning when his Range Rover hit a van. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Samuel is a soccer player who joined English club Aston Villa in 1998, and made 199 appearances for them. He then played for Bolton Wanderers 83 times between 2007 and 2011.

More recently, he was a player-manager for non-league side Egerton.

Aston Villa took to Twitter to comment on Samuel's death, stating that their players would don black armbands in his honor for their semi-final fixture.


Trinidad and Tobago Football Association also made an announcement about his loss on their Facebook page, explaining that his Range Rover had caught fire after the collision and he had been burnt to death.

They continued by extending condolences to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Cheshire Police were called to the scene of the accident, and had made sure that Samuel's family was contacted as soon as he was identified.

The driver of the van has not been identified publicly.
