Girl Wakes Up From Coma That Resulted From Car Crash With Chiefs Coach

Ariel Young, the 5-year-old girl critically injured in a car crash involving a Kansas City Chiefs coach, has awakened from a coma, her aunt said Monday.

“Ariel is awake,” Tiffany Verhulst wrote on the GoFundMe page she organized for the girl and her family. There were no other details.

Britt Reid, then an assistant coach for Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, his father, reportedly plowed into two cars on a highway ramp near the team’s facility in Kansas City just days before the Chiefs lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl. A 4-year-old in one of the vehicles had less severe injuries, but Ariel suffered a brain hemorrhage, according to Verhulst.

Andy Reid acknowledged that the girl was “fighting for her life” in comments after the Super Bowl.

Cops say Britt Reid, who did not travel to the game and whose contract with the team has expired, told officers he had two to three drinks and had a prescription for Adderall. He hasn’t been charged.

“My heart goes out to all those who were involved in the accident, in particular the family with the little girl who’s fighting for her life,” Andy Reid said after the Super Bowl.

Britt Reid, then a linebackers coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, spoke to the media the week before the Super Bowl. Days later he was involved in an accident that left a girl in a coma.
