The family of 5-Year-Old Ariel are finally getting their wish some two months after all of their lives were changed by a former member of the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff.
Britt Reid, the former Kansas City Chiefs coach who was involved in a crash that seriously injured a 5-year-old girl in February before Super Bowl LV, could now be facing some serious charges.
Reid admitted to having “two or three drinks” and his prescription Adderall after he caused the three-vehicle collision a day before the Chiefs left for the Super Bowl. Crash documents say that a white Dodge pickup truck driven by Reid struck a Chevrolet Impala that had run out of gas and was on the ramp. Reid also hit a Chevrolet Traverse and parked near them with their headlights on.
The crash seriously injured a five-year-old girl, as the family’s lawyer revealed in March that she suffered brain damage.
“Likely she has permanent brain damage that she will endure for the rest of her life,” family attorney Tom Porto said. “She’s not walking. It’s a sad, sad story.”
Her aunt, Tiffany Verhulst, wrote on the donation page for the child that the girl is still in the hospital.
“Ariel remains in the hospital, she is getting a little better each day but she still has a long road to recovery. Britt Reid is out everyday living his normal life while she cannot, please don’t let her story be forgotten. Court will take a long time and we don’t know what will be the outcome of it all. So please keep sharing her story and praying for her and the family. Thank you,” the update from March 27 read.
