    Hi,

    I would use "from" which indicates a cause.

    So, you can say "die from overdose"

    But you should say "die of/from a disease or an injury"

    I might also be wrong. Let's hear what native speakers say about it.

    Hope it helps.

    I share Dimcl's point. Died of and died from are interchangeable. You should not test your students with this trick question.
