PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — The 5-year-old girl who was injured during a car crash involving Kansas City Chiefs outside linebackers coach Britt Reid is “awake,” according to a GoFundMe created by Tiffany Verhulst, the child’s aunt, on behalf of her mother. The child was hospitalized in critical condition with a brain injury following the crash.

Reid, the son of former Philadelphia Eagles coach and current Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, was placed on administrative leave after being involved in the multi-vehicle crash earlier this month. And last week, reports by ESPN and the NFL Network revealed he was no longer employed by the team.
