A toxicology report released Saturday showed late Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez had both cocaine and alcohol in his system at the time he died in a fatal boat crash off the coast of Miami Beach in September.

According to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department (via David Ovalle of the Miami Herald), Fernandez had a blood-alcohol content nearly twice the legal limit when the accident occurred:

On Wednesday, a search warrant affidavit obtained by the Miami Herald (h/t ESPN.com) revealed that Fernandez and his friends emitted a strong odor of alcohol when they were found following the crash.

The warrant also cited evidence of reckless driving that was “exacerbated by the consumption of alcohol.”

Fernandez was a two-time All-Star, the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year and one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.

The Marlins honored him with a pregame ceremony prior to their Sept. 26 meeting with the New York Mets and wore memorial patches for the remainder of the 2016 season.

Fernandez died at the age of 24.
