Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach involved in a multicar crash

Britt Reid, the son of Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and the team’s outside linebackers coach, was involved in a multicar accident that took place on Thursday night. It left a 5-year-old child with life-threatening injuries, according to a team statement and the police.

Reid, who was set to leave with the Chiefs on Saturday for Super Bowl LV against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is now not expected to travel to Tampa, Florida.

Reid is in the hospital with undisclosed injuries and could remain admitted there for days.

Report by Kansas City Missouri Police Department (KCPD), notes that a car ran out of gas on an on-ramp to Interstate 435 in Kansas City on Thursday night. After the driver asked relatives for help, a second car arrived, also parking on the on-ramp.

According to the police report, a third car, which Kansas City television station KSHB says was driven by Britt Reid, then came along and hit first the left front of the disabled vehicle and then the back of the second vehicle, where the 5-year-old child was sitting in the back seat along with a 4-year-old child, who also was taken to an area hospital but with non-life-threatening injuries.

The station said Reid admitted to police that he was driving the third car, according to a search warrant. The police report said the driver of the third car suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was being investigated for potential impairment.

Nobody involved in the multicar accident is identified by name by police as of yet.

Reid had joined the Chiefs in 2013 as a defensive assistant coach. He became assistant defensive line coach in 2015 and defensive line coach in 2016. By 2019, he became the outside linebackers coach.
