Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, was involved in a multi-car accident that took place Thursday evening near Arrowhead Stadium. Two young children were taken to the hospital.
According to the Kansas City, Missouri, police department, a Chevrolet Impala that had run out of gas was getting help from a person in a Chevrolet Traverse on the ramp from Stadium Drive to I-435. Both cars were struck by a white Dodge Ram Laramie Sport pickup truck, injuring a 5-year-old and a 4-year-old, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Britt Reid confessed to police that he drove The Ram. He told an officer that he’d consumed “two to three” drinks after the officer noticed “a moderate odor of alcoholic beverages.”
According to a search warrant first obtained by CNN affiliate station KSHB, Reid also told police he was taking the prescription medication Adderall.
The Kansas City Chiefs released a statement saying, “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.”
