Two victims involved in Rashee Rice and Theodore Knox‘s car crash in Dallas are suing the football players for $1 million, a lawsuit filed in Dallas County revealed on Monday. Rice, who was driving a Lamborghini, and Knox, driving a Corvette leased by the Chiefs wide receiver, are facing eight charges after the crash that involved four other vehicles.

According to court documents, plaintiffs Irina Gromova and Edvard Petrovskiy are suing for $1 million for severe injuries, listed as “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, drivers of two of the other cars in the chain collision, are suing for negligence and punitive damages. Those include 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.

The Kansas City Chiefs start their spring workout program this week without Rice following his arrest last week. According to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, the second-year NFL player will meet with the team virtually while they begin the conditioning phase of the offseason. Reid’s comments on Rice were the team’s first since he was involved in the multi-vehicle crash.

“I’m leaving that, like we’ve done most of these, for the law enforcement part to take place and then we will go from there with that,” Reid told reporters, via Ian Rapoport.

Rice surrendered himself to the Glenn Heights Police Department on Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest Wednesday. His lawyer, Royce West, confirmed that he was released on bond after they remanded him into custody at the DeSoto regional jail.

The NFL is reportedly monitoring the situation. The league could punish the wide receiver for violating the personal conduct policy.

Eight charges filed against Chiefs WR following crash

Rice, who is set to enter his second year in the NFL, is now facing eight charges following the accident. He has six counts of collision involving bodily injury, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and one count of aggravated assault. Theodore Knox, a cornerback at SMU, has since been suspended from the team and is facing similar charges.

An arrest warrant affidavit, obtained by the Dallas Morning News, revealed that the NFL star was driving 119 miles per hour seconds before the six-vehicle crash on US-75 on March 30. The cars, a Lamborghini and Corvette, were also making “multiple aggressive maneuvers to get through traffic.”

The speed limit on that stretch of US-75 is 70 mph. According to the affidavit’s crash data, the Lamborghini Urus went 119 mph in the 4.5 seconds before the crash. The Corvette was going 116 mph, but slowed to 91 mph in the second leading up to the crash.
