The news continues to be rough when it comes to 5-year-old Ariel, the girl injured in the February crash that led to felony DUI charges against former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid.

In an update on the Gofundme page for Ariel and the family, it is revealed she is home and undergoing therapy.

Ariel is at home recovering, 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.

There was a request on the page that would be great if someone, somewhere were able to help the family. They are seeking a wheelchair-accessible vehicle.

Ariel’s mother is currently looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle, if there is anyone in Kansas City Missouri that knows of a place to get one please message the page directly. It would make getting her to and from her Physical therapy appointments much easier.
Thank you all again for the support.

On Monday the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office announced that Britt was charged with a DWI, a class D felony that carries a potential prison sentence of one to seven years.

“We don’t believe the charges are fair or harsh enough,” cousin Tiffany Verhulst, who has organized the GoFundMe for Young’s medical expenses, told USA TODAY Sports on Monday afternoon. “It’s been incredibly hard knowing he’s out every day living his normal life and Ariel’s life is completely changed.

“Our whole family’s life changed due to him making the decision to drink and drive.”
