Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid was not at Super Bowl LV because he was in a car crash in Kansas City on Thursday night that sent him and two children to the hospital.

The exact nature of Reid’s injuries are unknown, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said on Monday that his son has had surgery since the crash. He added that his condition has improved.

Britt Reid hit two cars that were pulled over on the side of the road and a five-year-old girl suffered serious injuries. A GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $300,000 for her medical care.

“My heart goes out to that young lady,” Andy Reid said, via Nate Taylor of TheAthletic.com. “I’m also a dad, so I get that.”

Reid told police officers that he had two or three drinks before driving on Thursday night and blood was drawn when he was taken to the hospital.

  1. Forgive me if I don’t have any sympathy for Britt Reid needing surgery.

    The fool was driving drunk, again, and hit not one, but two vehicles, and damn near killed a 5 year old girl

    Who cares if he needs surgery?

  2. So, if he admitted having 2-3 drinks in his system (in addition to the “prescription” adderall), what should we suppose was the actual number of drinks consumed? In 2007, this same piece of mess went to jail on gun and drug charges after He pointed a handgun at another driver following a dispute. While in jail on the road-rage charges, Reid was charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance and drug possession after a separate incident where he drove into a shopping cart in a parking lot while out on bail. I sure hope that poor little girl recovers. If she does or does not, this loser needs to have his license revoked permanently after his jail stint is over.

  3. Must be nice being born on 3rd base and acting like you hit a HR. As long as his dad enables him…nothing will change.

  4. I hope Britt had surgery to remove the part of his brain that thinks it’s OK to drink and drive and put himself in a position to potentially kill someone.

  5. Did I miss the charges of DUI? Why is Reid being condemned when he did not admit to being drunk and we haven’t seen the blood tests to verify that? The vigilantes need to stop and take a breath.

  6. I’m a lawyer. This fool better pray that that girl lives, though he’s looking at prison time either way.

  7. He’s improving? Good. Then he’ll be all healed up for court and prison. Imagine how many times he did this without getting caught, and now he’s flipped a family’s life upside-down. Choices we make in life can come back to haunt us. The picture of beautiful Ariel on life support is heart breaking.

  8. You can’t make me believe this wasn’t on Andy’s mind. There is no way he wasn’t distracted with his son’s health or guilt for those two girls.

  9. When “personal demons” become catastrophic injuries to innocent children, it’s time for a 20 year “timeout” in a federal penitentury

  10. Why is he still a Chief? Any other coah on the team would have been fired right after the first phone call.

  11. He’s not doing prison time. Its easy so easy to jump to that but that won’t be happening. Sorry to burst the mob mentality bubble. His decision making and actions along with what happened is horrible but you don’t have a very clear understanding of our legal system if you think he’s doing actual “prison” time. He’ll get in trouble sure but the worse case scenario I see is probation with a suspended 30-90 day county jail sentence.

    I would assume that Britt Reid will no longer be on the KC staff.

    At least. If this world truly is just, he’ll go from wearing a headset to an orange jumpsuit for a little while. Not 20 years like “theimmaculatedeception” wants, that’s ridiculous. That’s how people become institutionalized. A year plus is appropriate. IF the kid dies though (god forbid) this turns into a whole other ball game.

    He probably won’t see more than a month or so (if that) behind bars though and will get treatment and probation and nothing real will change. Hopefully this is the wake up call he needs.

  13. How did the NFL allow a man who served time on a gun/drug/DUI charge to be a Coach…oh, he’s a white boy and a coach’s kid. A black would be banned for life
