The Independent Police Complaints Commission has referred the death of England prospect Tom Maynard back to the Metropolitan Police Service.
The IPCC, the police watchdog, were notified by the MPS after Maynard was hit by a London Underground train at Wimbledon Park at around 5am on Monday morning. The 23-year-old Surrey batsman, son of former England cricketer Matthew, may have been trying to avoid police at the time of his death.
After investigating the incident, the IPCC have handed the case back to the MPS.
"The IPCC has assessed the referral from the Metropolitan Police Service regarding the death of a 23-year-old man," read an IPCC statement.
"The police evidence is that at 4.13am officers saw a car being driven erratically which they followed.
"The driver then decamped and after a short chase on foot, officers lost sight of him and had no further contact.
"The man appears to have been hit by a train at 5.04am.
"In the circumstances the IPCC has referred this matter back to the MPS.
"British Transport Police will prepare a file for the Coroner."
