Britt Reid, assistant linebackers coach for the Kansas City Chiefs and the son of head coach Andy Reid, was involved in a horrific car crash that sent two children in the hospital, one of whom suffered “life-threatening injuries,” per a report.
According to the report, a car ran out of gas which prompted the driver to call relatives for help. A second car would eventually show up and parked on the on-ramp.
The report goes on to say that Britt Reid came along and struck the disabled vehicle and then slammed into the rear of the second vehicle, where the 5-year-old child was in the backseat along with a 4-year-old child. Both were sent to the hospital, and the five-year old reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries, while the four year old’s injuries are not considered life-threatening.
The Kansas City Chiefs put out a statement:
“The organization has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving Outside Linebackers Coach, Britt Reid,” the Chiefs said in a statement Friday. “We are in the process of gathering information, and we will have no further comment at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”
Britt Reid suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash. “KCPD said investigators were trying to determine whether driver impairment was a factor in the crash,” the report says.
