Jose Fernandez had cocaine, alcohol in system during fatal boat crash

Miami Marlins star Jose Fernandez, a dominant pitcher and hero in Miami’s Cuban community was legally drunk and had drugs in his system when he was killed in a boat crash in late September.

The toxicology report showed Fernandez had a blood-alcohol content level of 0 point 147 nearly twice the legal limit for driving in Florida. He also had cocaine in his blood.

Fernandez and two other men were killed when their 32-foot boat struck a rock jetty off Miami Beach. The other men also had alcohol in their system below legal limits.

Fernandez was drafted by the Marlins in the first round in 2011. He made his Major League Baseball debut in April 2013 and won the National League Rookie of the year award becoming a two-time all-star.
