KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – A Kansas City man is in hospital after someone hit him with his car on Sunday afternoon outside Arrowhead Stadium.
This is the second accident involving pedestrians this season. A driver struck and killed Steven Hickle, 66, on October 10 while driving through Blue Ridge Cutoff.
The family of CD Nelsen, 49, said he was run over by a driver on November 21. His family say he is awake and talking with his family as he recovers in intensive care.
“For him, having had an accident like this was a pretty big shock,” said Nelsen’s daughter, Samantha. “I didn’t expect something like this to happen because there is so much traffic and it moves slowly.”
CD Nelsen is a driver for Showtime Transportation, a limousine service. He was working for them on Sunday, leading a group of tailgaters to and from the stadium.
It is a job that his family says brings him a lot of joy.
“He loves to go out and drive,” Samantha said.
When Samantha and her mother found out that he had been run over outside of his car, questions began to rush through their minds.
“The first thing I thought about was whether he was aware or reactive: that was our biggest concern,” she said. “Is he awake or is he going to be okay?” “
The Nelsen family are wondering what more can be done to protect pedestrians at play.
“The fact that this has happened twice. It’s not good,” Samantha said. “I’m devastated for the other person, the other family, but overall it’s just not right for this to happen twice in a month and a half.”
KCPD says driver impairment is part of this investigation. They were unable to give us an update on Monday afternoon on the crash investigation.
