5-year-old injured in crash awakens from coma

Eleven days after a crash involving then-Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid sent a 5-year-old into a coma, Ariel Young is awake, her family said. 

“Ariel is awake,” cousin Tiffany Verhulst wrote Monday on the GoFundMe page collecting donations for medical expenses. 

Verhulst had organized the fundraiser on behalf of Ariel’s mother Felicia. A GoFundMe spokesperson confirmed the validity of the page to the Kansas City Star. 

The Kansas City Police Department is investigating a Feb. 4 crash not far from the team practice facility in which Britt Reid, the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and then the team’s outside linebackers coach, hit two other vehicles.  

Britt Reid was involved in a multiple-vehicle accident on Feb. 4.

One vehicle had run out of gas and the second was bringing it fuel when a Ram Laramie Sport pickup struck the stranded car and slammed into the stopped car, Kansas City police officer Dave Jackson told USA TODAY Sports. The collision injured three people, including children ages 5 and 4. Ariel Young, the 5-year-old remained in a coma a week after the accident, her family posted on their GoFundMe page.
