Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid’s son, Britt Reid, who coaches outside linebackers for the Chiefs, was involved in a multi-car accident Thursday night. The serious crash has left a 5-year-old child with life-threatening injuries, according to reports.
Reid, who was scheduled to leave with the Chiefs on Saturday for Super Bowl LV against the Buccaneers, is not expected to travel to Tampa according to ESPN.
Reid’s vehicle struck a car that had responded to a disabled vehicle on an on-ramp to Interstate 435 in Kansas City according to reports. Two children were injured, one seriously. Reid is suspected on being impaired at the time of the accident.
The Chiefs released a statement on Friday regarding the incident.
