The ugly accident took place on Thursday, days before the Super Bowl. Young and her 4-year-old cousin were sitting in the back of one of the vehicles involved in the accidents.

According to a report, the accident happened after a grey Chevrolet Impala ran out of gas and was stopped on the southbound entrance ramp for I-435 from Stadium Drive near Arrowhead Stadium.

A Chevrolet Traverse was parked with its lights on near the Impala to assist. A Ram pickup truck, traveling on the entrance ramp struck the left front of the Impala and then hit the rear of the Traverse.

While Young's cousin suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including a broken nose and concussion, Young was not so lucky. The 5-year-old emerged as the primary victim of the accident.

Reid himself could not make it to the Super Bowl because he was hospitalized. It is reported that he admitted to having had some drinks before the accident, but he is yet to be charged with a crime.

According to reports, the investigation might take between 30-60 days; meanwhile, Reid's phone has been seized to investigate if he had any distractions while he was driving.

Andy Reid, Reid's father, said he was devastated by the accident even though he could not comment on the situation, but from a human standpoint, it was a sad situation. Friends and celebrities have sent their love and wish to the little Young as she fights for her life.
