SAN DIEGO - Former Chargers safety Terrence Kiel was killed after he was thrown from a Chevy sedan he was driving, police said Saturday.

Kiel, 27, was driving alone after leaving a party at about 10:15 Friday night when he hit a wall in San Diego's upscale Scripps Ranch neighborhood and was thrown from the car, police Sgt. Alan Hayward said.

Kiel was barely breathing when paramedics reached him and he died about an hour later, Hayward said.

Friends had tried to keep Kiel from driving home from the party, Hayward said, and witnesses told police he appeared to be driving in the wrong direction when he crashed.

Police would not know whether Kiel had been under the influence of drugs or alcohol until toxicology tests were performed, Hayward said.

A second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M in 2003, Kiel played four years in the NFL from 2003-2006, all with the Chargers.

In February 2007 he pleaded guilty to felony and misdemeanor drug charges for shipping prescription cough syrup to Texas, the most significant of several scrapes with the law.

He was released by the team after his plea.

Kiel had been led off the practice field and arrested in the locker room by Drug Enforcement Administration agents in September 2006, suspected of shipping at least two parcels of prescription cough syrup, apparently to be mixed with soft drinks to make a concoction known as "lean."

The felony charges were later dropped after he completed community service, and he was serving three years probation for the misdemeanor charges.

He was cited for urinating in public outside a San Diego nightclub in January 2007, but the city dropped that charge.

I think the Chargers ate his Cap when they cut him. He Played 4 years so it was probably not a big hit.

I find it funny when people bust out the idiot deal.....everyone here has either driven drunk or knows a bunch of people that have or both, just feel fortunate you aren't dead.

Just watching the news right now...

It seems as if he left a party, his car hit a curb making the car go out of control and hitting a brick wall. He was ejected from his car and pinned in between his 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the wall. He was heard screaming for help and saying "I Cant Breathe". 2 People from the party he left (which was right next door) came to try to roll the car off of him, but they couldn't. The EMTs arrived and tried CPR but he was barely alive and died a short time later.

Very sad story.

I hear ya. Check out the Heath Ledger death thread for reference.

But what a terrible way to go.

wow, the wreck looks terrible...but i agree 100% with Mecca, i even said it right after i heard about his death. some of my friends and family were saying how stupid he was for driving drunk, but i came back with saying that everyone has done it at some point, but we were just lucky enough to survive the trip home. i give the best wishes for his family and spirit.

Doing stupid things doesn't necessarily make a person incapable of recognizing someone else's stupid actions.

Clearly, he's an idiot. It's unfortunate that he died but maybe society caught a break if he failed to procreate.

I find it funny when people bust out the idiot deal.....everyone here has either driven drunk or knows a bunch of people that have or both, just feel fortunate you aren't dead.He's still an idiot for doing it and could have killed someone. It's also the case of a guy who just couldn't get his life together.

Idiocy is exactly what it is. I feel sorry for his family, friends, and people who knew him well, but I don't feel sorry for this bum. The way it sounds it was bound to happen.

Let me explain something. The guy made very good money as an NFL player. If he had common sense, he would had either turned his keys to his friends, who clearly TOLD him not to go. Or he could have called for a cab or a limo service.

I just don't get that. You make X,XXX,XXX millions of dollars, and for whatever reason, they fail to call a cab or a limo to escort their asses home. It's called "common sense."
