According to Tod Palmer of KSHB in Kansas City, Reid’s vehicle was on an entrance ramp when it struck two cars — one disabled vehicle that had run out of gas, and another that had come to help the other vehicle. The Kansas City Police Department told KSHB that two children were injured in the second vehicle, one with life-threatening injuries.
Reid told police he had been drinking, and an officer wrote that Reid showed “signs of impairment.”
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora said Reid would not travel to the Super Bowl with the team while the investigation is ongoing.
