girl injured in britt reid crash wakes from coma
I don't wanna spend a lot of time on this because I don't want to make it seem like I'm using this tragic story for clicks. But any good news is great news lately. Ex-Kansas City Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid (and son of head coach Andy Reid) was involved in a drunk driving accident, where he critically injured a five-year-old little girl.
