KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Richard Baldinger, a former lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs, was involved in a traffic accident that left a woman dead.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Marilyn Walters, 61, 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 Walters' car were injured. Baldinger was not listed as injured.
