    Angels' Adenhart killed in accident
    Rookie right-hander reportedly dies in three-car crash

    Angels rookie right-hander Nick Adenhart died early Thursday morning after a car accident in Fullerton, Calif., according to multiple reports.

    University of California-Irvine Medical Center spokesman John Murray said Adenhart died after undergoing surgery.

    Two others were killed and another was seriously injured in the accident, which involved three vehicles. Authorities were blaming the accident on a motorist who ran a red light with his van and then fled the scene on foot. He was later captured and charged with felony hit-and-run.

    An Angels employee, reached by telephone, said that the team was preparing a news release and that its media relations department was not taking any calls at that time.

    The news of Adenhart's death was first reported by Maryland television station WHAG, which cited a family member as its source. The Los Angeles Times cited an associate of the pitcher in its report.

    A gray Mistubishi, hit by the van, slammed into a light pole. Two of the occupants in the Mitsubishi were declared dead at the scene. Adenhart died just after 6 a.m. PT on Thursday.

    A fourth occupant is at University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange in critical condition, said WHAG.

    The third vehicle was stopped in the intersection at the time of the accident. The driver was not seriously hurt.

    Adenhart, 22, made his season debut against Oakland on Wednesday night, shutting out the A's for six innings in a game the Angels eventually lost, 6-3.

    A 14th-round Draft choice in 2004, Adenhart made his Major League debut on May 1 last season and made three starts, winning one of them.

    What a terrible loss! 22 years old . . . way too young. Being a long time A's fan, I actually watched the first 6 innings of last nights game and with the Angels up 4-0 . . . I promptly fell asleep. I was happy today when I first learned the A's had come back to win, but within moments that meant absolutely nothing hearing of young Nick's passing.

    My condolences to his family, friends and teammates. Being a father of 3, I cannot even begin to imagine the heartbreak.
