The Kansas City Chiefs say they’re going to make sure the 5-year-old who was seriously injured in the Britt Reid car crash earlier this year is taken of “for the rest of her life.”
The NFL team made the announcement Friday … explaining after working with Ariel Young‘s family and medical experts — they’ve developed a plan to ensure Young will be supported forever.
According to the Chiefs and Ariel’s attorney, Tom Porto, the plan will provide Ariel with “world-class medical care and long-term financial stability.”
As we previously reported, Young suffered catastrophic injuries after Reid — a former K.C. Chiefs assistant coach and Andy Reid‘s son — allegedly slammed his pickup truck into the back of a vehicle she was in on Feb. 4 in Kansas City.
Young has slowly and steadily recovered since … and, as part of Friday’s announcement, the Chiefs and Porto say she’s continuing to get better daily.
They added that even though her recovery process is still “a long road” — she did attend her first day of school earlier this fall.
Reid, meanwhile, is still facing a felony DWI charge over his alleged role in the car crash. A trial in the case has been set for April 2022.
