Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice was the driver of a Lamborghini involved in a multi-vehicle crash in northeast Dallas on Saturday night, his lawyer said in a Thursday news conference.

“Mr. Rice acknowledged that he was driving the Lamborghini, that was the question that was asked,” Rice’s attorney Royce West said about the police’s investigation into the crash. “He responded to that. That he was driving the Lamborghini.”

Police determined in a preliminary investigation that the drivers of a Lamborghini and a Corvette were speeding and lost control at the time of the crash. The Lamborghini hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles, police said.

The drivers of the Lamborghini and the Corvette ran from the scene, per police. Two other drivers involved in the crash were treated at the scene for minor injuries and two occupants of another vehicle were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

In regards to those injured, West — who is also a Texas state senator in District 23, which represents Dallas — 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.”

When asked why Rice left the scene Saturday, West said that’s “a good question that’s still being investigated.”

On Wednesday, Rice claimed “full responsibility” for his part in the crash Wednesday in an Instagram story post.

“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,” the wide receiver wrote. “I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident.”

Rice, 23, grew up in North Richland Hills, a suburb of Fort Worth, and played college football at SMU. The Chiefs drafted him in the second round in 2023, and he emerged as one of their top receivers last season.

Rice recorded 938 receiving yards and 79 receptions in 16 regular-season games in 2023. He added 262 yards and 26 receptions in four playoff games en route to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory.
