RIP Nick Adenhart

Tragic news from the west coast. Angels starter, and once phenom, Nick Adenhart has reportedly died in a car crash last night, just after his start versus the Oakland Athletics.

NBC25 - Williamsport High School graduate Nick Adenhart, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, died early this morning in a car accident in Fullerton, California, according to a family member.

Three people were killed in the crash and another person was seriously injured.

Authorities are blaming the three-vehicle accident on a motorist in a mini-van who ran a red light at East Orangethorpe Avenue and South Lemon Street.

Authorities say the driver of the van fled the scene, was later captured and charged with felony hit-and-run.
