Ariel Young, who is only five years old, is likely to suffer from permanent brain damage, after being injured in a car crash caused by Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid. The crash happened on February 4, right before the Superbowl. Right near the Chief’s home stadium.
Tom Porto, the family attorney of Ariel Young’s family, gave updates involving Ariel’s condition and updates on the ongoing investigation on an ABC exclusive interview.
“She’s awake, which is a huge development,” Porto said. “Likely, she has permanent brain damage that she will endure for the rest of her life. She’s not walking. It’s a sad, sad, sad story.”
Reid, who’s had a history of driving-related incidents, is currently under investigation.
When police arrived on the scene, police noticed Reid had “bloodshot eyes” and had an “acholic odor” to him(Reid). Reid also told officers he consumed “two or three drinks” before operating his vehicle
“If you have two or three drinks, and then you get behind the wheel of a car, you are likely over the legal limit,” Porto said referring to Reid’s statements to police.
The Chiefs currently have Reid( Britt) on administrative leave, but police have yet to file any charges against Reid, despite admissions to consuming alcohol before operating a vehicle.
Head coach Andy Reid released this statement in regards to the incident.
“My heart goes out to that young lady, I’m also a dad, so I get that. So I have concerns obviously on both sides,” said Andy Reid. “Britt did have surgery, but he’s doing better now, but that little girl, my heart goes out to her.”
The Family of Ariel Young says they wish life could go back to normal before the crash.
