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.

“The organization has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving Outside Linebackers Coach, Britt Reid. We are in the process of gathering information, and we will have no further comment at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”

Just not good form. There’s a 5-year-old with life threatening injuries. That’s a much bigger story here.

This is like when that bengals guy in Miami in the January 1989 super bowl was found high on crack in his hotel room and couldn’t play or the center for the raiders who went to Tijuana right before our last super bowl and couldn’t play. This is a huge distraction. This has to have an impact on them in some way. It can’t be positive

These people are going to celebrate with confetti holding up a Lombardi trophy? I don’t think so. Inappropriate when the coaches kid drunk an employee of the chiefs nearly killed a child. They are toast. They can’t be the winners of a Super Bowl after this. This is an embarrassment to the NFL.

Terrible Terrible Terrible for the kids involved. Worst stories ever are the family just traveling along and a drunk idiot ruins their life or kills someone. Absolutely worst stories ever. I get people wanna have a good time but nowadays with Uber and so many available options to not have to drive anywhere if you don’t want to there’s no excuse for this s**t. You’re handed a job by your dad and now you’re gonna get fired and hopefully thrown in jail because you had to drink and drive and put a kid in a life-threatening condition? He deserves whatever… Read more »

This will apparently be his 2nd DUI. In 2007 he was sentenced to 6 months for DUI, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Just tragic. Believe me, I know exactly what that family is going through right now. The worst part is knowing it could’ve been avoided had the A hole not been impaired. Is this the same Reid kid who had past substance abuse problems, or was that another Reid spawn? Chiefs nation has nothing to celebrate win, or lose.

No you’re mixing him up with Andy’s other son who died. But my god dude have a little sympathy for the situation.

Swash, I lost a kid to a car accident. Fuck drunk assholes who take innocent lives. To bad this son of his didn’t take his own life before maybe killing a couple of kids. Put your ” sympathy” where it belongs, with those little lives, and not for loser who caused this carnage.

I think Swash called it right. He called for sympathy for the situation, not for Reid. Andy has already lost one son to substance abuse and now he may lose another to prison which if he was impaired, is where he belongs. At the time of his first sons loss I believe it was also reported that this son also had a substance abuse problem. I’m extremely sorry for your loss, I can’t imagine being in your shoes but I do know an addiction to alcohol is organic from being a recovering alcoholic for 18 years myself. For anyone who… Read more »

I have been in recovery myself for 9 years. This is the same guy who was arrested for DUI in 2007 and served 6 months. I have sympathy for the struggle but this is a mistake that could have been avoided by simply calling for an Uber. He had his learning moment in 2007 and refused to learn so this blood is on his hands and he deserves to pay for his mistakes. I hope that poor child makes it out alive and fully recovers. Addiction is a disease and deserves understanding but the consequences of ones actions don’t deserve… Read more »

I concur. Good luck with your recovery. Anyone in recovery no mater how short or long of a time, always has my blessings for life long sobriety.

This story is bigger then just a football game, we don’t know if he was legally intoxicated or not, let’s not jump to conclusions. It would be nice if we could keep the comments classy and respectful in this situation. If you pray, then pray for the child and all the families involved.

He admitted to having a few drinks and took adderral. He was intoxicated and this isn’t the first time he’s made the news in a negative way. Now a 5 year old child is in life threatening condition.

I have zero sympathy for Britt Reid.

I stopped drinking because of the “regrets” the next day. Talk about your all time regrets, wow. How can you live with yourself after this… what’s the right word… reckless, idiotic move?

All the best to the families involved from all angles and especially the children injured. What a shame. Senseless.

Hopefully it ends as well as possible for all involved. Unreal. Godspeed

God I really hope the young kid pulls through. I truly feel for the kids family. I also feel for Andy Reid. His sons have put him through the ringer for the past 2 decades. It’s just brutal man. Awful situation all around
