As per TMZ.com, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed last night in a hit and run accident in Fullerton, CA, after pitching in last night's game:
Cops say someone driving a minivan blew through a red light, causing the Mitsubishi that Adenhart was riding in to hit a light pole. Three people were killed in the crash, including Nick.
Cops say the person driving the van fled the scene -- but was later caught and charged with felony hit-and-run. The suspect is currently being treated for injuries in a local hospital.
This is the saddest thing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Adenhart's family and the entire Angels organization.
