Chain reaction crash kills 1 near Arrowhead StadiumPosted on 22 October 2018 at 8:48am
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Police say one person died and three people were injured when an off-duty Kansas City police officer driving a department van hit another vehicle.
Police spokesman Capt. Lionel Colon said the crash occurred Sunday afternoon on Interstate 435 near Arrowhead Stadium as Kansas City Chiefs fans were arriving for the team's game.
Colon says the police van ran into a vehicle involved in slow traffic lining up to turn into the stadium. That vehicle hit a second vehicle, which hit a third car.
The driver of the van that was hit by the police vehicle was killed. The person's identity has not been released.
The Kansas City Star reports police staff often are on-call and use police vehicles while off-duty so they can quickly respond if needed.
