Reid, 35, who is a son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, was the team’s outside linebackers coach. He was initially placed on administrative leave immediately following the crash, and is now no longer employed by the team.

Kansas City police said the crash happened near the team’s training complex next to Arrowhead Stadium. Two vehicles were pulled over at the side of the on-ramp to Interstate 435 — one had run out of gas, and the occupants of the other stopped to help — when Reid’s pickup truck ran into them around 9 p.m. on Feb. 4.

Two children, ages 5 and 4, were taken to the hospital. Reid complained of stomach pain; he reportedly underwent surgery for injuries not detailed by the team.

Police said Reid told investigators he had “two or three drinks” and had a prescription for Adderall when the crash occurred. Police have said they are investigating whether Reid was impaired.

The crash occurred three days before Kansas City played in the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay, losing to the Buccaneers. Reid did not travel with the team for the championship game.
