Ariel Young, 6, was involved in the three-car crash early last month. She is reportedly hospitalized at the Kansas City, Missouri hospital and was injured pre-Super Bowl.

A family lawyer, Tom Porto, recently spoke out for the first time since the incident. In an exclusive interview with “Good Morning America,” Porto described the severity of the accident.

Ariel got injured after the former Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid struck their vehicle. With the state of the crash, the little one almost lost her life.

She continues to fight for her life at the hospital and has reportedly sustained a brain injury and cannot speak. Speaking on the incident, Porto said it was not a minor collision but a life-changing experience.

Reid hit a car belonging to Ariel’s family; three of her family members had pulled over to the side of a highway. He was reportedly driving at highway speeds when his truck rammed the first car.

Ariel, who was in the second car, suffered life-threatening injuries while her 4-year-old cousin, who was also in the car, got off unharmed. They were both rushed to the hospital.

Giving an update on Ariel's condition, Porto revealed that she is awake and has permanent brain damage. He also added that she is unable to walk.

Reid's car was reportedly totaled, and the two vehicles that he ran into were flattened and unrecognizable. Porto added that looking at the pictures, it's a miracle that they all survived.

According to People, Ariel's family had previously shared that her recovery process will take a while. The crash is reportedly still under investigation.

It occurred near the Chief’s home stadium in Kansas City. Reid allegedly admitted having been drinking before the incident and had taken the prescription drug Adderall. No charges were filed against him.

According to People, they created a GoFundMe page to cover Ariel's medical bills. A few days after the car accident, the page had surpassed its initial $100,000 goal.

Ariel's mom is a single mother to three kids; the donations were for the hospital bills and missed work that will come, the page stated. It also said that they appreciate the support they received.
