Nick Adenhart Killed in Car Crash

Postby IowaCubs » Thu Apr 09, 2009 8:25 am

Wow... this is so SAD. ... t-Run.html

Angels rookie Nick Adenhart, 22, was among three people killed in a crash at a Fullerton intersection early Thursday.

Adenhart, another man and a woman were all killed, and another man was critically injured, in a three-vehicle crash blamed on a motorist who ran a red light at a Fullerton intersection, police said. Besides Adenhart, one of the other people who was also killed was also part of the Angels organization.


Witnesses said a minivan ran a red light and collided with a silver Mitsubishi occupied by four people, said Fullerton police Lt. Craig Brower.

The Mitsubishi slammed into a light pole. A man and a woman in the Mitsubishi died at the scene, Brower said.

Two other men in the Mitsubishi were transported in critical condition to UC Irvine Medical Center, where one man died, he said.

Traffic was routed around the area, and the intersection remained closed after daybreak, Brower said. ... ball-game/


We're told one of the other men killed in the crash was also affiliated with the Angels organization.

Nick was 22-years-old.

FYI -- Nick pitched his ass off last night, striking out 5 guys in 6 scoreless innings. His performance was hailed by sportswriters as a "brilliant effort by a 22-year-old right-hander making his fourth Major League start."

Wow, very sad.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Funny or inappropriate story: I had just selected him in my dynasty league's farm draft.

I was shocked to hear this. What a stud he could have been. I have a friend in the Marlins farm system who was close to him. Rest in peace nick
