Reid has not been charged with a crime.
The multi-vehicle crash, which occurred on the Thursday night before Super Bowl 55, injured two children. A 5-yea-old girl was left in critical condition with a brain injury. The other, a 4-year-old, was left with injuries not considered life threatening.
Reid crashed into a stalled car while leaving the Chiefs’ team facility, according to police. There are questions surrounding when Reid started drinking; had he been drinking at the Chiefs’ facility, it would be in violation of the league’s alcohol policy.
Reid was arrested on a DUI charge in 2007 stemming from a road-rage incident.
