Adenhart crash survivor upgraded to fair condition

LOS ANGELES (AP)—The passenger injured in the car crash that killed Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart had his status upgraded to fair late last week and has been undergoing physical and speech therapy.

Jon Wilhite, of Manhattan Beach, remains in intensive care at the UC Irvine Medical Center, but can move and is not paralyzed, hospital spokesman John Murray said.

His condition was upgraded last Thursday.

The 24-year-old was riding in a Mitsubishi Eclipse with Adenhart and two friends on April 9 when a minivan ran a red light and broadsided the car at about 12:30 a.m. in neighboring Fullerton.

Adenhart died in surgery hours after he made his season debut by pitching six scoreless innings.

Two others in the Eclipse died in the crash.
