The agent for Rays prospect Andrew Bellatti spoke Tuesday about the fatal crash Jan. 22 involving his client.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the 18-year-old Bellatti drove his red Mustang across a double yellow line and into a mini-van driven by David Norman Reid and his son. Reid died and his son was severely injured.

“He’s devastated,” Bellatti’s agent Jonathan Weisz said. “His parents are devastated. I was with his parents (Monday) and to see his mother and father, they’re devastated because they understand that two families’ lives have changed forever.”

Bellatti was a 12th round pick who was 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in 12 games, three starts, for the Gulf Coast League Rays.
