KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - A 5-year-old is fighting for their life after a three-vehicle crash near Arrowhead Stadium, which Kansas City police say involved Chiefs Linebackers Coach Britt Reid.
Britt is Head Coach Andy Reid’s son.
As of right now, no charges have been filed and no final finding of fault has been reported but police say there is an investigation underway.
KCTV5′s Emily Rittman was at the Jackson County Courthouse on Friday with details of a search warrant filed in the case.
According to the search warrant, investigators took four vials of blood from Britt Reid to determine if he was impaired at the time of the crash last night.
Police returned to the scene this afternoon.
Just last night after 9, a Chevy Impala ran out of gas near I-435 and Stadium Drive. The driver called a relative, who pulled up to the scene to help.
That’s when a Ram pickup truck struck both vehicles.
A 5-year-old who was in one of the vehicles was critically hurt. A 4-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Court documents identify the striking driver as Britt Reid.
According to the search warrant, an officer reported that Reid smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot.
When asked if he had been drinking, the officer said Reid told him he had 2-3 drinks and he was on Adderall.
According to court records, the officer conducted several sobriety tests and Reid showed signs of impairment.
