LA pitcher killed by drunk driver

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

LOS ANGELES (WFLX) - Los Angeles pitcher Nick Adenhart is killed by a drunk driver.

According to police, a 22-year-old was driving drunk when he ran a red light and slammed into the pitcher's car. He ran from the scene, but police later caught him.

Adenhart died at the hospital; two other passengers died, and a third is clinging to life.

Coaches and his agent held an emotional press conference. Struggling to find words, the agent tried to say he spoke with Adenhart's parents. They asked, and the commissioner agreed, that Thursday night's game between the Angels and the Oakland A's be canceled.
