Former Chiefs lineman in accident that kills 1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Richard Baldinger, a former lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, was involved in a traffic accident that claimed the life of a 61-year-old woman.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Marilyn Walters of Grain Valley was killed when the car she was in collided with a car driven by the 49-year-old Baldinger. The accident happened about 2:15 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of U.S. 40 in Blue Springs.

The patrol said two people in Walter's car were injured. Baldinger was not listed as injured.

The accident was under investigation.

Baldinger was an offensive lineman for the Chiefs from 1982-93. The team's Web site says Baldinger would be handling sideline reports for the team's preseason games. He has also worked for CBS Sports, Fox Sports and Kansas City's Metro Sports.
