This is very sad. My condolences go out to the Adenhart family and all the families and friends affected by this accident. Such a great young talent lost to such a senseless act. I lost my father three years ago to a drunk driver and it really has affected my family. RIP

this guy doesn't even look sorry. :-t

Pretty much how I pictured: a scummy douchebag.

I'd say we should lynch this prick, along with other people who consistently drive drunk, but that probably wouldn't be ethical.

My condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy. RIP. :,-(
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's horrible. Absolutely horrible. It should be way harder for people with previous DUIs to get their licenses back.

The problem is his license was suspended already. In this case, they are considering (rightfully so) murder charges. See http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball ... rges_N.htm

Hamilton said Andrew Gallo shouldn't expect much leniency because his blood-alcohol level exceeded the state limit of .08%, he had a prior DUI conviction, he was driving on a suspended license, and he fled the scene.

Yeah not having their license isn't much of a deterrent for a lot of people to not keep driving.

Its a personal story about a clubbie in LA who worked Nick Adenhart's locker. But incredibly well written and moving.
