(April 2, 1992 – October 9, 2012)

 

(FoxNews) – The actress who portrayed a pitcher in the 2005 remake
of “The Bad News Bears” reportedly died from injuries suffered in an
apparent drunk-driving related crash in California.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Sammi Kane Kraft, 20, was a
passenger in a vehicle that rear-ended a tractor-trailer about 1:30 a.m.
Wednesday near the Crenshaw Boulevard exit of the Santa Monica
Freeway, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said. The disabled
Audi Kraft was riding in was then struck by a Toyota Scion.

The driver, identified as Molly Adams, 21, of Santa Monica, was treated
for serious injuries at California Medical Center. The truck driver was
treated for minor injuries. Kraft was pronounced dead at Cedars Sinai
Medical Center from unspecified injuries, the CHP and a relative told
the newspaper.

Adams was booked on suspicion of felony driving under the influence,
officials with the California Highway Patrol said.

Kraft portrayed pitcher Amanda Whurlitzer in "The Bad News Bears,"
reprising the role made famous by Oscar-winner Tatum O’Neal.

CHANCE TO WIN CHAMPIONSHIP LOST!

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) – Dale Earnhardt Jr. will miss the next two races with a 
concussion, ending the championship chances of NASCAR’s most popular
driver who turned 38 yesterday, Oct. 10.

Hendrick Motorsports said Thursday that Earnhardt will sit out Charlotte and
Kansas, and Regan Smith (below) will replace him in the No. 88 Chevrolet.

Earnhardt was diagnosed Wednesday in Charlotte, the team said. Earnhardt,
team owner Rick Hendrick and crew chief Steve Letarte were scheduled to
discuss his injury Thursday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Earnhardt was injured in a 25-car last-lap accident Sunday, Oct. 7,  at Talladega. Because he was able to drive his car away from the accident — teammate Jimmie Johnson even caught a lift on the window back to the garage — Earnhardt was
not required to go to the care center for an examination at the time.

Immediately after the race, he called restrictor-plate racing "bloodthirsty" and said
he no longer had any desire to compete at Daytona and Talladega.

Sunday’s wreck was at least the second hard hit Earnhardt has had this season. He struck the wall extremely hard during an Aug. 29 Goodyear test at Kansas when his
right front tire failed.
