Lawyer: Chiefs WR Rashee Rice was driving Lamborghini in crash

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice was driving the Lamborghini at the center of a six-car, hit-and-run crash in Dallas on Saturday, Rice’s attorney said Thursday in a news conference.

Two people were hospitalized with minor injuries sustained in the chain-reaction collision that occurred after Rice’s Lamborghini and a Corvette crashed while speeding, police said. Two others were treated for lesser injuries at the scene.

Royce West, Rice’s attorney, said Rice “wants to make certain it’s understood and appreciated that he’s going to do everything in his power to bring their life back to as normal as possible.”

West said Rice knows someone could have been seriously injured.

“He understands that, he appreciates that, that’s why he wanted to come out and say he’s going to be responsible for making certain that the victims are made whole as best as possible,” the lawyer said.

Rice and the driver of the Corvette both fled the scene, according to police, and West said “that’s still being investigated.” He said Rice is cooperating with police.

On Wednesday, Rice met with police and apologized on social media for his role in the crash.

“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.”

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) last year 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.
