New details are emerging about a serious drunken crash involving former Chiefs football coach Britt Reid and a 5-year-old girl.
The drunken crash happened more than two years ago when the former Chiefs coach slammed his car into two cars that had pulled to the side of an on-ramp to I-435 near Arrowhead Stadium. Five-year-old Ariel Young was left with a traumatic brain injury.
The case file is now public and police are releasing dash cam video from the night of the crash. That video was released publicly by Kansas City Police on Thursday.

The video shows Britt Reid never took a field sobriety test. Officers stood him in front of their squad car so it could be captured on video. Reid said he had injuries and the decision was made to transport him to the hospital where a blood draw was taken.
Officer: I can’t have you on the phone
Reid: My dad is sitting right there.
Officer: But we can’t have you on the phone, okay?
Reid: Any word on that little girl?
Officer: I have not heard anything, sir.
In the search of his car, investigators found six prescription bottles with his name on them.
Reid, the son of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, had just left the team’s facility on Feb. 4, 2021, which was the same week in which the team was to compete in the Super Bowl.
Ariel Young, who at the time was five years old, was in a coma for two weeks, and suffered traumatic brain injuries. Reid was fired from his position as linebackers coach on the Chiefs after the arrest.
It eventually emerged that Reid had been drinking at the team facility. Last November, Reid reached a plea deal to spend three years in jail for the incident. The family of Young slammed the plea deal as too lenient.
His blood alcohol at the time of the crash was estimated to be .132, according to prosecutors. The legal driving limit in Missouri is .08.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
