KANSAS CITY, MO. — Former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid was charged Monday with driving while intoxicated resulting in serious physical injury after a crash that left a 5-year-old girl critically injured.
The Jackson County, Mo., prosecutor’s office said Reid’s blood alcohol content shortly after the Feb. 4 crash was .113, above the legal limit of .08. He also was driving about 84 mph in a 65 mph zone seconds before his truck crashed into two cars stopped on an entrance ramp to Interstate 435 near Arrowhead Stadium.
One of the vehicles had stalled because its battery was dead, and the second was owned by a cousin who had arrived to help, according to the charging documents.
