2 minutes, 38 seconds Read

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice was renting the Lamborghini SUV used in the multivehicle hit-and-run collision in Dallas this weekend, an attorney for the car rental company confirmed Tuesday.

Kyle Coker, who represents The Classic Lifestyle, told The Dallas Morning News that Rice rented the black 2021 Lamborghini Urus from the company in March and was expected to have it until “sometime in June.” The Classic Lifestyle bills itself as a Dallas-based exotic and luxury car renter, with a lineup that includes multiple Rolls Royce, Lamborghini and Ferrari vehicles, among others.

Rice was the only one contractually allowed to drive the vehicle, Coker said. He added that Rice was renting the SUV for more than $10,000 a month.

An attorney for Rice did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday afternoon.

Text messages reviewed by The News show a contact named “Rashee” admitting the Lamborghini was involved in a crash. The texts from “Rashee” included a promise to pay for any damages.

Texts from late March showed “Rashee” working through the logistics of the contract as he prepared to pick up the Lamborghini. He was given a discounted rate for the vehicle for three months, according to the texts.

“We will pursue all necessary legal avenues to resolve this dispute,” Coker told The News on Tuesday. “We’re feeling better now that everyone is out of the hospital, but obviously our first concern is everyone that was injured and that the victims are taken care of.”

The new details connect Rice to both vehicles, the Urus and a Chevrolet Corvette registered or leased to him, involved in the crash. Police say the vehicles were speeding on North Central Expressway before the wreck started at about 6:20 p.m. Saturday.

The News broke the story Sunday that Dallas police were seeking to speak with Rice — a former Richland High School and SMU star — in connection with the six-vehicle collision.

Footage obtained by The News shows the Urus and Corvette attempting to pass cars in the left lane before slamming into a white sedan and colliding with multiple other vehicles across several lanes of traffic. Two motorists were treated for injuries at the scene, and two other people were treated for minor injuries at a hospital, a police spokeswoman said.

At least three of the victims of the crash have retained legal counsel, lawyers have said.

Rice’s alleged involvement in the crash is unclear. A police call sheet obtained by The News confirmed law enforcement was searching for Rice, who was listed as the suspected driver of the Corvette. It’s unclear if police have since determined who was driving which car; officials have only said they’re continuing to investigate.

No suspects have been identified.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Dallas police Detective Kenneth Watson at [email protected].
