Woman damage in crash involving Chiefs coach Britt Reid awake | Nationwide Information
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A 5-year-old girl who was seriously injured and in a coma after an accident this month with Kansas City chief executive Britt Reid is now awake, sharing her family in an online contribution.
The news was delivered on Monday in a short post on the GoFundMe page for Ariel Young, who has been hospitalized since the February 4 crash.
Reid, the son of head coach Andy Reid, was the team’s external linebacker coach. Immediately after the crash, he was put on administrative leave, but is no longer part of the team. His contract expired in the last few days and was not renewed.
Kansas City police said the crash happened near the team’s training complex next to Arrowhead Stadium when Reid’s truck crashed into two vehicles on a freeway ramp, injuring Ariel and another child in one of the cars.
Reid underwent surgery for injuries that were not detailed by the team.
Police said Reid told investigators he had “two or three drinks” and a recipe for Adderall when the crash happened. Police said they are investigating whether Reid was impaired.
The crash occurred three days before Kansas City played in the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay and lost to the Buccaneers. Reid did not travel with the team for the championship game.
