PARIS (AP) -- Nick Broad, a member of Paris Saint-Germain's backroom staff, has died as a result of a traffic accident. He was 38.

PSG said on its website on Saturday that Broad died from the injuries he sustained on Thursday. Reports said he was hit by an oncoming vehicle while sitting in his stationary car as he waited for assistance on the side of the motorway after running out of fuel.

Broad was the club's performance director, advising players over dietary techniques as well as monitoring their physical parameters.

He was a friend of PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti and worked as head of Chelsea's science department when the Italian coached Chelsea from 2009-11.

He joined PSG in January last year and previously worked as a dietician for Blackburn and Birmingham.
