Kansas City Chiefs Place Assistant Coach Britt Reid On Administrative Leave Following Crash (Update)

Britt Reid has been out on administrative leave, following a three-car accident that left a 5-year-old girl in critical condition.

“We remain in the process of gathering information on the incident, and we will continue to assist local authorities as requested,” the Chiefs said in a statement. “Our focus remains on [the girl] and her family. We have reached out to the family to offer our support and resources to them during this difficult time, and we will continue to pray for her recovery.”

As of Tuesday, the child remains in critical condition, CNN reports.

A GoFundMe was created on behalf of the mother. It has raised more than $425,000.

As previously reported, in a search warrant obtained by CNN affiliate KSHB, police identified Britt Reid as the Dodge Ram truck driver. He told a responding officer that he had consumed “two to three” drinks after the officer observed an odor of alcohol and his eyes being bloodshot red.

In addition, he told the officer that he takes the prescription drug Adderall. The officer initiated a field sobriety test and observed signs of impairment. Britt was taken to a local hospital after complaining of stomach pain.

Reid also sustained injuries in the accident that reportedly required surgery.
