Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, is expected to miss the Super Bowl after being involved in a car accident Thursday night.

Britt Reid’s pickup truck struck a car that ran out of gas on an on ramp to I-435 within a short distance of the practice facility and struck another car that had parked on the ramp to assist around 9 p.m., Kansas City television station KSHB reported. The crashes caused life-threatening injuries to a 5-year-old and injured a 4-year-old.

The Chiefs released a statement acknowledging the accident and said they are “in the process of gathering information.”

Britt Reid, 35, interned for his father with the Eagles in 2009 and has been on the Chiefs’ staff since 2013.

KSHB reported that, according to a search warrant filed Thursday, a police officer smelled a “moderate odor of [alcohol],” and Reid admitted to having had two or three drinks as well as taking prescribed Adderall. The report also said the officer observed signs of impairment and got a judge’s approval to draw blood from Reid at the hospital.

Two of Reid’s sons have had multiple issues with the law.

In 2007, a Pennsylvania judge sentenced Garrett Reid to up to 23 months for crashing into another car while high on heroin and gave Britt Reid the same sentence for aiming a gun at another driver in a separate incident the same day. Garrett Reid died of a heroin overdose five years later.
