Top Angels Prospect Adenhart Killed in Car Crash

Postby artgold » Thu Apr 09, 2009 12:00 pm

Angels' pitcher Nick Adenhart was among the three killed in a crash in Fullerton when a driver ran a red light, an associate of the rookie player said this morning. The crash occurred only hours after the 22-year-old appeared in Wednesday night's Angels game.

The accident occurred shortly after midnight at the intersection of Orangethorpe Avenue and Lemon Street in Fullerton, said Lt. Craig Brower of the Fullerton Police Department.

That is really sad for any 22 YO but I thought Adenhart was on the brink of a terrific career. My heart goes out to his friends and family.

I know that it seems insensitive for us to post on baseball in light of this so I wanted to comment. This is very sad. It happens every day. A kid took out three telephone poles in my area just a couple of nights ago. I saw the car. I hope the kid is OK. My thoughts are for Adenhart's family and those of the other guys. ANY young person killed in this way or any way is just tragic.

I hope he is pitching today in heaven against Maris, Mantle, Ruth and DiMaggio!

To Nick's family, both immediate and extended, I think we all send our thoughts and prayers.
