KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Rashee Rice and Theodore Knox are being sued for over $1 million in damages and $10 million in punitive damages by two victims in the March 30 crash in Dallas, Texas, according to a lawsuit filed in Dallas County.

The court document says the plaintiffs, Irina Gromova and Edvard Petrovskiy of Dallas County, are seeking monetary relief for over $1 million for severe injuries, including “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.”

Gromova and Petrovskiy were both driving in their respective cars and had their seatbelts on at the time of the crash.

They are suing for negligence and punitive damages, which includes physical and mental harm, property damages, costs of medical prevention and care in the future, loss of earnings, potential harm to their safety and welfare, along with several other claims, according to court documents.

Rice, a Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, who was driving a Lamborghini SUV 119 miles per hour seconds before causing a six-vehicle crash last month, turned himself into the Glenn Heights, Texas Police Department after a warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday, April 10.

He is currently facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision causing injury.

Knox, who also caused the crash that injured four people, was driving a Chevrolet Corvette — also leased under Rice– and was traveling at a speed of 91 miles per hour 1.5 seconds before the crash. He also turned himself into police on Friday, April 12 and is facing the same charges as Rice.

“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 document said.

After the crash, Rice and Knox left the scene on an exit ramp with the other passengers that were in the cars, despite seeing the damages they caused.

The lawsuit said, “The victims and bystanders of the carnage tried to engage the Defendants, but they were ignored in the Defendants’ attempt to flee without responsibility.”

Both Gromova and Petrovskiy demand a trial by jury, according to the document. As for the four other victims in the crash, no statement or lawsuit has been released.
