Girl hurt in crash involving Chiefs coach Britt Reid awake

A 5-year-old girl left critically injured and in a coma following a crash this month involving former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid is now awake, her family said in an online post.

The news was delivered Monday in a brief post on the GoFundMe page for Ariel Young, who has been hospitalized since the Feb. 4 crash in Kansas City.

Reid, who is the the son of Kansas City head coach Andy Reid, was the team’s outside linebackers coach. He initially was placed on administrative leave following the crash, but is now no longer employed by the team. His contract expired in recent days and was not renewed.

Police said Reid told investigators he had “two or three drinks” and had a prescription for Adderall when the crash occurred. Police have said they are investigating whether Reid was impaired.

The crash occurred three days before Kansas City played in the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, losing to the Buccaneers. Reid did not travel with the team for the championship game.
