Highway Safety Investigators have told reporters that Ronaldinho lost control while driving a friend's vehicle on Interstate 80 and rolled the vehicle several times killing him instantly.
The vehicle was believed to have been traveling at approximately 95 miles per hour in a 55mph zone at the time of the accident.
Witnesses have stated that Ronaldinho's car crossed the double lines several times prior to the accident and hit the center lane divider causing the vehicle to flip and roll.
Toxicology tests will be performed to determine whether he was driving under the influence, however initial findings indicate that durgs or alcohol did not contribute in any way to this accident as it was more likely to been caused by road conditions.
However, some sources claim that the star Ronaldinho is not dead and is preparing for a match this evening between Maniero and Corinthian. So whatever the news is we would continue to update you on it
However later on the day Ronaldinho played the aforementioned match which therefore means that he is not dead and therefore the death of Ronaldinho should be regarded as mere rumours
