Andy Reid Finally Breaks His Silence On Son’s Sad Car Accident

As if Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid didn't have enough on his mind the week leading up to Super Bowl 55 in Tampa against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the man had a very pressing personal matter weighing on him as well.

Three days before the big game, Andy's son, Britt Reid, who is also the Chiefs' outside linebackers coach, was involved in a car crash in the Kansas City area that led to two young children being injured, according to Yahoo Sports. Allegedly, Britt was driving his pickup truck on Interstate 435 when he ran into two cars parked on the side of the road.

Prior to the game, Andy hadn't addressed the situation at all, likely wanting to keep his focus on the Super Bowl. At the time of the accident, the Kansas City Chiefs released a statement that read, in part,

"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."

However, after his team's Super Bowl loss, Reid spoke up about the nighttime crash. He said,

"My heart goes out to all those that were involved in the accident, in particular the family with the little girl who is fighting for her life. From a human standpoint, my heart bleeds for everybody involved."

Although Britt was hospitalized with undisclosed injuries, two young children were hurt: a 4-year-old, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and a 5-year-old girl, who's in critical condition. According to a GoFundMe set up for the child, she

"...suffered swelling in and bleeding in and around the brain. She is in critical condition and hasn’t woken since the crash."

The crash is currently under investigation. Britt admitted to police that he'd had two or three drinks and taken the prescription drug Adderall before driving on the highway toward the Chiefs' practice facility.

The GoFundMe page that was set up for the injured 5-year-old girl, raised more than ,000 within 15 hours, according to the New York Post. As of the making of this video, the 0,000 goal was met and far exceeded, with a donation total of more than 0,000.

According to the page, which was apparently set up by the girl's aunt, the young girl and her family had driven to and parked on a highway on-ramp to help another family member who was having car problems. That's when Britt Reid smashed into one of the cars in his Ram pickup truck, injuring the two children.

The page's organizer, Tiffany Verhulst, posted a message about the older girl's health to the page on Super Bowl Sunday:

"[She] remains in the hospital in critical condition and is not awake. No progress updates as of right now. Thank you to everyone who has donated to support the family through this hard time, we are so grateful."

In the wake of the car accident, new details about Britt Reid's past have emerged, and it seems this isn't his first brush with trouble. According to a search warrant obtained by Fox 4 in Missouri, Britt has had "multiple prior DUI contacts." The warrant also states that, when a police officer conducted a sobriety test at the scene of the accident in February 2021, the officer, quote, "saw four clues of impairment."

According to the New York Post, Britt's legal troubles began in 2007. When he and his late brother, Garrett Reid, were arrested, a judge described them as a, quote, "family in crisis" living in a home akin to a, quote, "drug emporium." Saddled with gun and drug charges, Britt was sentenced to eight to 23 months in jail, plus five months probation. He pleaded guilty to carrying a firearm without a license, which is a felony.

While in jail, Britt was slapped with additional charges from yet another incident. According to The New York Post, when Reid was out on bail at one point, he was driving under the influence in a parking lot and slammed into a shopping cart. For the two charges, he served a total of six months. His parole was dependent upon him enrolling in a drug treatment program.

IIHS news release • February 22, 2018

Rear crash prevention ratings aim to reduce parking lot collisions
