A horrible tragedy in Fullerton, CA, last night, as a car Adenhart and two others were in was struck by a minivan. The minivan driver faces murder charges, among others. As the Angels players grieved and got back to work on Friday night (with a win over Boston), we also found out that the accused driver has been in trouble with the law before.
This should not happen to anyone, period. Not to a young ballplayer with a bright future, not even to one’s worst enemy. Kyle Koster of the Chicago Sun-Times correctly reminds us that drunk driving is not okay and can have disastrous consequences.
Condolences to Adenhart’s parents and friends. And let us never forget to regularly remind our friends and family how much we care for and love them.
