Girl Injured in Super Bowl Coach Crash Suffering From Brain Damage, Lawyer Says

Another heartbreaking update about the little girl injured in the February 4 car crash with former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid just before the Super Bowl: Ariel Young likely has permanent brain damage, her family’s lawyer, Tom Porto, says. The 5-year-old was sitting in the back seat of a car parked on the side of the highway with her 4-year-old cousin as her mom and aunt were helping a 19-year-old family member, also parked there, whose car had run out of gas. Reid, who admitted to having two or three drinks before driving, hit the two parked cars at high speed, flattening the back seat where Ariel and her cousin were sitting. Her cousin suffered a broken nose and a concussion, but Ariel’s injuries were life-threatening and left her in a coma for more than a week.
