After starting yesterday for the Angels, Nick Adenhart was killed in a 3 car accident last night. Terrible shame. 22 years old. Looks like the accident was caused by someone running a red light, causing his vehicle to crash into a pole, killing him and 2 others.

Thoughts go out to his family and the Angels organization.

Why isn't this on the Angels site?

EDIT: L.A. Times confirms.


I heard about the Fullerton accident this morning, but had no idea about Adenhart. So sad.

Just saw this as soon as I woke up. Such a shame, and I hope the other driver rots. My condolences to his friends, family and teammates.

Last night my future brother-in-law called me to tell me to watch the game because his cousin Nick was starting for the Angels. We were really excited and watched him. This is awful. I don't even know what to think.

This is coming off the heels of another major hit-and-run story, where a USC student and her friend were plowed by a couple running a red light (and in the ultimate show of callousness, merely stopped long enough to peel one of them off the hood of the car before driving off like nothing happened), which makes this that much more of an eye-opener here in Southern California. I'm not saying hit-and-runs are out of control (yet), but I go through the commute every day and I see for myself how whacked out of their gourds most of the L.A. drivers are. The more time passes, the crazier people are getting on the road out here and it's starting to lead to tragedy. And it's a shame that a kid so young had his life taken by some douchebag that couldn't understand red means stop.

RIP

This really has me floored. He pitched a hell of a game last night (in spite of the loss) and had a tremendous future. Just a terrible, terrible tragedy. Just... wow.

It is getting really bad. It's not so much the speed or maneuvering as much as the sense that people simply aren't paying attention to anything around them - and it's feels like it has gotten worse since the cellphone ban.

You should. He was drunk and fled the scene before finally being arrested.

Sadly, one of my first thoughts was "Weird to see a DUI fatality where the professional athlete is the victim and not the perpetrator."

I can't really blame you, with what happened with Donte Stallworth.

Well, to be fair, Stallworth didn't run away from the scene of his accident and did cooperate with the police. I'm not trying to defend him for what he did since he apperently was drinking the night of the accident, but it's apples to oranges comparing him to the monster in this crash. A guy with a suspended license, drunk, speeding, shooting through a red light and plowing into a car killing three people, and then running away from the scene.

It's a tragic story no matter what and I hope this guy gets thrown into prison for a very long time. Unfortunately, considering the sometimes lax sentencing in drunk driving cases (at least around here, from the news stories I have read), I'm not sure that he will stay in prison for long.







Well, our season's over already.

But if rehabbing and participating in minor league games is a part of Major League Baseball like you suggest in the first paragraph then it isn't a 60 day ban because he would be back when he starts playing in the minors.
