Kansas City Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid, the son of head coach Andy Reid, won’t travel to the Super Bowl this weekend after being involved in a multi-car accident on Thursday night.

A incident report filed by Kansas City Missouri Police Department (KCPD) said the incident was set in motion when a car ran out of gas on an on-ramp to Interstate 435 in Kansas City.
After the driver of the vehicle called relatives for help a second car then arrived on the scene to provide assistance, also parking up on the on-ramp nearby to the Chiefs’ training complex adjacent to Arrowhead Stadium.
It was at this point a third car, which according to Kansas City TV station KCHB was driven by Reid, allegedly passed by and collided with the front of the stationary vehicle before hitting the rear of the second vehicle.
It’s understood that the five-year-old child was in the back seat of the second car, along with a four-year-old child who was taken to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
A search warrant was issued at the scene, with Reid acknowledging he was the driver of the third car.
The police report stated he also suffered non life threatening injuries, while he was also being investigated for possible impairment.

A KCPD officer who was present at the scene reportedly said Reid’s eyes were bloodshot, while he also smelled ‘a moderate odour of alcoholic beverages’.
In response Reid told the office that he had consumed two to three drinks and had also took prescription Adderall.
Reid, 35, is not expected to travel to Tampa for the showdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Chiefs said in a statement on Friday: “The organisation has been made aware of a multi-vehicle accident involving Outside Linebackers Coach, Britt Reid.
“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.”
