Ariel Young, a little girl who suffered a brain injury in the Britt Reid car crash incident in February, has still NOT been released from the hospital, but she’s starting to make improvements.
She was in a coma for more than a week when Britt Reid — son of K.C. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid allegedly slammed his car into the vehicle she was in during a Feb. 4 crash.
She is 5 years old
The 5-year-old girl injured in a car crash that involved former Kansas City Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid is “getting a little better each day,” according to a GoFundMe update.
The family intends to press charges against Reid, who reportedly told police he had two to three drinks before he got in his car.
Reid was reportedly driving a pickup truck that struck two vehicles parked on the side of an interstate near the Chiefs’ practice facility on Feb. 4.

Young was the only person to suffer life-threatening injuries in the crash. According to a police report acquired by ABC News, Reid’s truck was allegedly driving at “highway speed” at the time of the crash.
Following the crash, Reid did not travel with the team to Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs lost the contest 31-9 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A few days after the Super Bowl, it was revealed the Chiefs put Reid on leave and quietly allowed his contract to expire.
5-year-old Ariel Young was in a coma for more than a week when Britt Reid — son of K.C. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid — allegedly slammed his car into the vehicle she was in during a Feb. 4 crash.
Young woke up from her coma in mid-February — but doctors diagnosed her with a traumatic brain injury and expected a “long road to recovery.”
Young’s family, through her GoFundMe page, provided an update on her health over the weekend.
“Ariel remains in the hospital, she is getting a little better each day but she still has a long road to recovery.”
As we previously reported, cops say Britt Reid admitted to drinking alcohol and taking Adderall before smashing into two parked cars that were pulled over on the side of a highway on-ramp.
Cops announced they were investigating the crash, but so far, no formal charges have been brought against Reid.
Young’s family is unhappy with the pace of the investigation — saying, “Britt Reid is out everyday living his normal life while [Ariel] cannot, please don’t let her story be forgotten.”
