Crash That Killed Nick Adenhart, Both Drivers DUI?


Dresswarm has learned that the driver of the vehicle carrying a sober Nick Adenhart after the game was allegedly two times the legal limit (BAC .16).

Andrew Thomas Gallo, 22, of San Gabriel, is facing three counts of murder, drunk driving and fleeing the scene of an accident in connection with an April car crash that also killed Courtney Stewart, 20, of Diamond Bar and Henry Pearson, 25, of Manhattan Beach.

Police allege Gallo had a blood-alcohol content three times the legal limit when he allegedly ran a red light and broadsided the victims' car. He faces 55 years to life in prison if convicted.

The crash occurred in the early morning hours of April 9, just hours after Adenhart, a rookie right-hander, had thrown six shutout innings against the Oakland Athletics in his first outing of the season.

Gallo's attorney, Randall Longwith has indicated that he will file a motion to change venue, due to the vast pre-judgement of the case.
