Chiefs to provide medical care, financial aid to injured girl

The Kansas City Chiefs have committed to providing lifetime medical care and financial assistance to the young girl critically injured earlier this year in a car crash involving former assistant coach Britt Reid.

The team and the lawyer for the family of the girl, Ariel Young, issued a statement Friday that confirmed the Chiefs’ participation but didn’t provide specifics. Issued on behalf of the team and attorney Tom Porto, the statement said Ariel will have “world-class medical care and long-term financial stability.”

Reid is alleged to have been driving drunk on Feb. 4 when he hit two cars that were stopped on the side of an entrance ramp to Interstate 435, not far from Arrowhead Stadium. The wreck left Ariel, then 5, with a traumatic brain injury, and injured another child.

“Ariel’s recovery is a long road, but she has made great strides and continues to improve every day,” the statement said. “Earlier this fall, she attended her first day of school.”

Reid is facing a felony driving while intoxicated charge and is scheduled to go to trial on April 18.

Kansas City prosecutors say Reid had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.113 from a sample taken two hours after he barreled into a disabled vehicle on I-435. Reid was driving 83.9 miles per hour — in a posted 65 mph zone — 1.9 seconds before slamming into the vehicle, per the probable cause statement form made public earlier this year.

He is the son of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who hired him to coach linebackers. The team did not renew his contract when it expired soon after the incident.

If convicted of the Class D felony, Reid, 36, could be sentenced up to seven years in prison.
