It’s been nearly 2 months since five-year-old Ariel has been in the hospital after former Chiefs assistant coach and son of head coach Andy Reid, Britt Reid, crashed his truck into two vehicles and reportedly admitted to police that he had consumed “two or three drinks” along with Adderall before the accident.
The girl has been hospitalized since the Feb. 4 crash, when police say Reid’s truck slammed into two vehicles on the side of a highway entrance ramp near Kansas City’s NFL training complex next to Arrowhead Stadium, injuring Ariel and another child inside one of the cars.
Reid is the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and had been the team’s outside linebackers coach at the time of the crash. He was initially placed on administrative leave immediately following the crash, but is no longer employed by the team after his contract was not renewed in the days after the crash. He did not travel with the team to Tampa, Florida, for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl, which Kansas City lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Police have said Britt Reid admitted to investigators to having had “two or three drinks” along with prescribed Adderall before the crash.
Authorities have said they are still awaiting toxicology reports in the case, and no charges have been filed.
The girl’s family is calling for justice and wants to know why Reid isn’t in jail for the crash that left the little girl with serious life-altering injuries.

Ariel remains in the hospital with her brain injury, 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.
Back in early March authorities said they were still awaiting toxicology reports in the case, and no charges have been filed.
