According to this article from Adenharts hometown newspaper,

"NBC25 - Williamsport High School graduate Nick Adenhart, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, died early this morning in a car accident in Fullerton, California, according to a family member.

Three people were killed in the crash and another person was seriously injured.

Authorities are blaming the three-vehicle accident on a motorist in a mini-van who ran a red light at East Orangethorpe Avenue and South Lemon Street."

Foremost, our most heartfelt condolences go out to Nick's family and friends.  Just 22 years-old and taken from us all.

Two others died in the crash, both passengers in the same car as Adenhart.  Neither of which were members of the Angels' organization.
