Chiefs’ Rashee Rice takes ‘full responsibility’ for crash

rashee rice

Kansas City Chiefs receiver Rashee Rice met with Dallas police Wednesday and apologized on social media for his role in a weekend car accident that injured four people.

“Today I met with Dallas PD investigators regarding Saturday’s accident. I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities,” he posted to his Instagram story. “I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident.”

A Lamborghini sport utility vehicle leased by Rice was one of two speeding sports cars that authorities say caused a chain-reaction crash on a downtown Dallas highway on Saturday night.

The occupants of the Lamborghini and a Corvette left the scene without checking to see if anyone needed medical attention or providing their information, according to police.

Attorney Royce West said earlier this week that Rice is cooperating with police “and will take all necessary steps to address this situation responsibly.”

The Chiefs and the NFL are monitoring the developing situation.

Rice, who turns 24 on April 22, grew up in the North Texas suburb of North Richland Hills and attended college in Dallas at SMU.

He recorded 79 catches and 938 yards with a team-leading seven touchdown receptions in 16 games (eight starts) after being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He also had 26 catches for 262 yards and a score in four playoff games to help the Chiefs secure their second straight Super Bowl title.
