KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A pedestrian from Kansas is dead after being struck by two hit-and-run drivers near Arrowhead Stadium as the man was leaving the Kansas City Chiefs game.

Police are searching for the drivers who fled the scene Sunday night.

The victim was a 66-year-old man from Wichita, Kansas. Police say the man and another person left the game early, so traffic crews were not yet on the scene to assist with exiting.

The second person was not struck. Police say the victim was struck by a vehicle and while lying in the roadway was run over by a second vehicle. The man died at a hospital.
