Two victims from the high-speed crash involving Chiefs wideout Rashee Rice have sued for $10 million in damages.

The suit said that Gromova and Petrovskiy suffered “trauma to the brain, lacerations to the face requiring stitches, multiple contusions about the body, disfigurement, internal bleeding, and other internal and external injuries that may only be fully revealed over the course of medical treatment,” according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram.

Police said that the 23-year-old Rice was driving 119 miles per hour seconds before the wreck while Knox was allegedly driving 116. The speed limit was 70.

“Depsite his physical abilities and responsibilities as a public figure, Rice raced a high-powered vehicle through the public roads of Dallas County, Texas, lost control, and injured several innocent people including the Plaintiffs in this cause,” the lawsuit continued.

The suit brought up how Rice and Knox fled the scene of the crash: “The victims and bystanders of the carnage tried to engage the Defendants, but they were ignored in the Defendants’ attempt to flee without responsibility.”

Rice and Knox were each charged with eight felony counts as a result of the incident.

Rice’s attorney, Royce West, said earlier this month that the Chiefs wideout would be responsible in making things right with the victims.

“He’s a young man that made a mistake,” West told reporters, promising that Rice will “do everything in his power to bring their life back to as normal as possible in terms of injuries, in terms of property damage.”

Rice, who had 79 catches for 938 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie last season, is entering the second season of a four-year, $6,495,208 contract with Chiefs, including a $1.7 million signing bonus with $3.5 million guaranteed.
