Rookie Angels Pitcher Adenhart Killed In Crash, Driver Charged With Murder And DUI

Comments (0)

On April 13, the San Gabriel, California man who has been accused of killing three people, including 22-year-old rookie Anaheim Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart, in a crash while driving under the influence was in court on multiple murder charges.

The judge agreed with the prosecution that 22-year-old Andrew Thomas Gallo represented a flight risk and raised his bail to $2 million. Gallo did not enter a plea during the proceedings.

Police say that Gallo, who was driving on a suspended license because of a prior DUI conviction, fled the scene of the fatal April 9 crash and was apprehended 30 minutes later.

According to Orange County District Attorney Anthony Rackauckas, his office made the decision to pursue second-degree murder charges because Gallo’s actions display implied malice, based on his criminal record.

The crash took the lives of Adenhart, 20-year-old Courtney Frances Stewart, and 25-year-old Henry Nigel Pearson. Officials say that at the time of the crash, Gallo had a blood-alcohol content three times that of the legal limit.
