A former Kansas City police officer pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in a 2018 wreck near Arrowhead Stadium that killed a Kansas teenager. 

Police allege Terrell Watkins, 35, was speeding in a police van in October 2018 when he hit the back of a car as traffic backed up to get into a Kansas City Chiefs game. The crash killed Chandan Rajanna, 17, of Overland Park. 

Rajanna's father and sister, and Watkins were seriously injured. Investigators say Watkins was speeding, recklessly changing lanes and using his phone shortly before the wreck.
