Lanka player arrested

Colombo: Sri Lankan player Kaushal Lokuarachchi escaped serious injury but was arrested after a fatal car accident on Saturday morning, local police said.

Lokuarachchi, 21, lost control of his car while returning home late from Colombo, crashing past a bus stand, through a wall and into a roadside house.

He escaped with minor shoulder injuries after the activation of the carís safety airbags but a woman was killed and her son critically injured. Lokuarachchi was examined by a police medical officer who reported that he was not under the influence of liquor.

Lokuarachchi was arrested before being released on bail. The leg-spinning allrounder, has played three Tests and five ODIs.
