from Breaking News Desk (BND): Just got off phone with California Angels organization... so sad. They confirmed that indeed 22 year old Nick Adenhart died in a car crash overnight.

It happened just hours after the rookie had pitched in a game for the Angels. We knew about the hit and run in Fullerton and that a minivan driver had run a red light and hit two cars. Three people died... another is hospitalized in critical condition.

Here's a screen grab from the live video of the scene now. Adenhart was in the Sliver Mitsubishi that is wrapped around the light pole. Cops say they caught up with the Minivan driver and he's been charged with felony hit and run.

Expecting an official statment shortly from the Angels... who told me Nick will be missed.

H-out
