The five-year-old child severely injured in a car crash involving Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, the son of Andy Reid, remains in critical condition.
After Kansas City’s 31-9 Super Bowl LV loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night, Andy Reid addressed the matter, saying his heart aches for everyone involved in the accident.
“My heart goes out to all those who were involved in the accident, in particular the family with the little girl who’s fighting for her life,” Reid said, according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher. “I can’t comment on it any more than what I am here. So the questions you have, I’m going to have to turn those down; but just from a human standpoint, my heart bleeds for everybody involved in that.”
Britt Reid, the Chiefs’ outside linebackers coach, was involved in a three-car accident in Kansas City on Thursday night. According to the Kansas City Star, the child injured in the crash suffered swelling and bleeding in the brain and hasn’t woken up since the accident.
Police are investigating Reid for suspicion of driving under the influence, according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher.
An officer’s statement said Britt had bloodshot eyes and a “moderate odor of alcoholic beverages” at the time of the crash. Britt admitted to driving the vehicle that hit two cars and reportedly said he had two or three drinks and prescription Adderall in his system.
