Rashee Rice ‘has retained legal counsel’ after Dallas car crash – Daily Mail

2 minutes, 18 seconds Read

Rashee Rice appears braced for a legal battle after reports claimed he has retained counsel in the wake of a multi-car crash involving his vehicle on Saturday. 

The Kansas City Chiefs star is being hunted by cops after shocking dashcam footage surfaced of a Dallas crash involving six cars, followed by a group of men walking away from the scene.

Rice has still not presented himself to police, and NFL reporter Josina Anderson tweeted on Sunday night: ‘I’m told Chiefs WR Rashee Rice has retained counsel, per source. Separately, a release on the incident is expected sometime tomorrow [Monday].’

In the clip, a Lamborghini and a Corvette are filmed going at high speed and can be seen colliding with a grey car on the North Central Expressway, pulling the cars across the road. It has been claimed the Lamborghini and Corvette, which police suspect Rice was driving, were racing.

Five men from the Corvette and Lamborghini then appeared to walk away from the scene on the shoulder of the highway, as pictures from the scene show. 

Rice, who helped the Chiefs win a second straight Super Bowl in February, is wanted by cops because the Corvette is either registered or leased to him. Dallas News claims police suspect that he was the driver.

The publication also claims on Sunday night that a witness saw one of the men take ‘guns and bags from the vehicles’ before leaving the scene.

The incident is believed to have happened at 6:20pm local time. The Lamborghini is thought to have crashed into the median wall and caused ‘a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles’, before the two drivers ran from the scene.

A woman involved in the collision – identified as 27-year-old Kayla Quinn – said the accident put her four-year-old son in danger and the men speeding walked away from the crash site without sympathy. 

‘No one stopped,’ Quinn said to the DMN. ‘We had children, like, we had kids, you know what I’m saying? 

‘It’s the fact that there was no sympathy shown to where y’all can even have the decency to stop and check to make sure someone’s OK, someone’s alive, you know?

‘I’m just blessed that I was able to walk out of there because it could have been so much worse.’ 

Quinn’s son was checked out by paramedics at the scene of the accident and was deemed to be alright. 

DailyMail.com has reached out to the Dallas County Sheriff Department for more information.

Rice grew up in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills, Texas and spent all four years of his college career in Dallas at SMU.
