KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker posted statements on Twitter Thursday related to charges filed against Britt Reid in his involvement in a car crash that seriously injured 5-year-old Ariel Young.

Reid, a former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach and son of head coach Andy Reid, was charged with a DWI and serious physical injury on Monday, nearly two months after the crash happened.

In a series of tweets, Peters Baker said her and her team reviewed all the evidence and will “vigorously pursue this case and seek justice for all victims in this matter.”

Additionally, she wrote that Missouri law requires that “victims suffer substantial risk of death or injury causing serious disfigurement or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any part of the body.”

“I’m grateful the other victims in this case didn’t suffer that level of injury,” Peters Baker wrote.

Reid surrendered to Kansas City police on Monday and posted bond.

Court documents show that Reid’s blood alcohol level was .113 and he was driving 82 mph in a 65 mph zone leading up to the crash.
