The Corvette involved in the crash is believed to be registered or leased to Rice. A police call sheet obtained by The News listed Rice as the suspected driver of the Corvette.

A Dallas police spokesperson said police are still working to identify suspects.

Rice did not appear in Dallas County jail records as of 11 a.m. Sunday. It was not immediately clear if he was suspected of any charges.

Rice moved to Texas in the third grade and stayed in the area through high school. He lived in North Richland Hills and played on the Richland High School football team. He attended Southern Methodist University and became one of the most successful wide receivers in Mustang history, leading the nation his senior year in receiving yards per game.

Following his successful college career, the Kansas City Chiefs drafted Rice in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He won a Super Bowl with the team in February.

It was not immediately clear if Rice was in Dallas this weekend. Photographs of Rice and other NFL players were posted Saturday to the Instagram account of Thursday Night Bowling, which bills itself a private event and bowling party. It is not clear when the photos were taken.
