The 5-year-old girl injured in a car accident caused by former Kansas City coach Britt Reid is “getting a little better each day,” according to a GoFundMe update.
Ariel Young was hospitalized with life-threating injuries on Feb. 4 after Reid’s pickup truck reportedly slammed into two cars parked on the side of an interstate near the Chiefs’ practice facility. Reid, the son of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, reportedly told police officers he’d had two or three drinks before getting behind the wheel.
Young’s family intends to press charges against Britt Reid. The latest GoFundMe update was the first one provided in 11 days. She woke up from a coma on Feb. 15.
“Ariel remains in the hospital, she is getting a little better each day but she still has a long road to recovery,” the post read. “Britt Reid is out everyday living his normal life while she cannot, please don’t let her story be forgotten. Court will take a long time and we don’t know what will be the outcome of it all. So please keep sharing her story and praying for her and the family. Thank you.”
