Lawsuit written on brown vintage paper.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The family of a teen who was killed in a crash with an off-duty officer outside the stadium where the Kansas City Chiefs play has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

The Kansas City Star reports that the lawsuit was filed in Jackson County Circuit Court against Terrell Watkins. He was driving a police van to an off-duty security assignment at Arrowhead Stadium in heavy pregame traffic last month when he slammed into the back of a car. The crash killed the car’s driver, 17-year-old Chandan Rajanna, of Overland Park, Kansas, and seriously hurt the teen’s father and older sister.

Watkins isn’t identified in the lawsuit as a police officer, but police officials previously said that an officer was involved in the fatal wreck. Watkins doesn’t have a listed phone number.
