The 5-year-old girl who was badly injured in the Britt Reid car crash in February is now out of the hospital … but her family says she still has a long road to full recovery.
Ariel Young suffered catastrophic injuries after Reid — a former K.C. Chiefs assistant coach and Andy Reid‘s son — allegedly slammed his pickup truck into the back of a vehicle she was in on Feb. 4 in Kansas City.
Investigators say Young’s brain was hurt badly … adding she suffered a skull fracture and subdural hematomas, among other ailments, as well.
Young had been in the hospital since the accident trying to recover … but her family said Tuesday she was taken home this week.
“Ariel is at home recovering,” the family said in a statement, “we hope that her being in a familiar place will help her remember things.”
“She is doing physical therapy but as of right now she still cannot walk, talk or eat like a normal 5 year old. Thank you everyone for your continued support.”
35-year-old Britt was charged with one count of felony DWI on Monday over the wreck … after officials say he had .113 BAC when measured around 2 hours after the crash.
Investigators also said Britt was going 83.9 MPH in a 65 MPH just seconds before the collision.
Britt surrendered to authorities and took a mug shot shortly after prosecutors announced the charge on Monday.
If convicted, Britt is facing up to 7 years behind bars.
