DALLAS (KCTV) – Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice faces a second lawsuit stemming from a crash and pileup on a Dallas highway last month.

Kamlesh Desai, of Dallas County, sued Rice, SMU wide receiver Theodore Knox, and the owners of the car dealership that leased two vehicles to Rice. Court records show the Desai filed the lawsuit April 4, lest than a week after the crash.

The lawsuit claims Rice and Knox were negligent and seeks more than $1 million.

The suit claims Rice and Knox were speeding on March 30. Rice drove a Lamborghini and Knox was behind the wheel of a Corvette. The lawsuit says one of the drivers collided while changing lanes and caused the chain reaction crash.

The two men are accused of running from the scene before emergency responders arrived. Rice and Knox are also accused of failing to follow Texas law to render aid to victims following a crash.

The lawsuit says Desai was injured in the collision, and those injuries may be permanent. He also claims to continue to suffer both physical and mental pain following the crash.

The lawsuit seeks money to cover medical care and expenses related to the crash, as well as any future medical bills. It also seeks lost wages and lost earnings capacity.

This is the second lawsuit filed following the March 30 crash.

The first seeks at least $1 million in damages. It was filed by two other people who suffered injuries in the Dallas pileup. It also claims negligence by Rice and Knox.

Rice is charged with one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury. Dallas Police said an investigation determined the 23-year-old was speeding on a Dallas highway when he lost control and crashed his luxury car.

A spokesperson for the NFL confirmed to KCTV5 that the league has been closely monitoring developments in the incident.

It is not yet known how the case may impact Rice’s NFL career, or the Chiefs selections in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft.
