The 5-year-old child severely injured in a vehicular crash involving Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid remains in critical condition, police said Saturday.

The child suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday night after the pickup truck Reid was driving slammed into two vehicles parked at the side of Interstate 435 near the Chiefs’ practice facility. A 4-year-old was also injured in the collision and suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Reid, an outside linebackers coach and the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, was also hospitalized with undisclosed injuries, ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported.

A GoFundMe page, verified to the Kanas City Star by a company spokeswoman, was set up on behalf of the severely injured child by a relative. According to the page, the crash victim “suffered swelling in the brain and bleeding around her brain, she hasn’t woken since the crash.”

Police are investigating Reid for suspicion of driving under the influence. Reid, 35, told authorities that he had two or three drinks that evening, according to a police report.

The Chiefs flew to Tampa, Florida, on Saturday, one day before Super Bowl LV. The team hasn’t made a statement since Friday, when it offered “thoughts and prayers” with everyone involved in the crash.
