Rashee Rice’s lawyer is set to hold a news conference in Dallas on Thursday afternoon, updating the public on the multiple-vehicle hit-and-run crash the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver was involved in last weekend. 

The conference is expected to start at 2:30 Eastern time with Rice’s lawyer, State Sen. Royce West, speaking in front of the media. 

A public update comes one day after Rice personally spoke on the situation, finally taking responsibility for his role in the incident.  

‘Today I met with Dallas PD investigators regarding Saturday’s accident,’ Rice said in a social media statement. 

‘I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident,’ Rice continued. 

The crash involved six vehicles on Saturday, which injured at least four people and left multiple vehicles damaged, per local police. 

Rice’s interview with the Dallas Police Department on Wednesday is believed to be the first time he spoke with authorities on the incident. 

Dallas PD have confirmed its investigation of the accident is ongoing. 

Rice’s exact involvement in the crash is still unclear. The two cars speeding in the incident, a Lamborghini Urus and a Chevrolet Corvette are registered, leased, or were rented to him. 

Rice is originally from North Richland Hills, Texas, a Dallas suburb and played college football at Southern Methodist University, who recently joined the ACC. 

The 23-year-old is understood to have leased the Lamborghini from a company called Classic Lifestyle. The rental agency alleges that his lease agreement states he is the only person allowed to drive the vehicle. 

Kyle Coker, the attorney representing The Classic Lifestyle, says that Rice was in the Lamborghini at the time of the crash, despite police suspecting that he was behind the wheel of the Corvette.  

A woman involved in the multi-car crash involving Rice reportedly said the accident put her 4-year-old son in danger and the men speeding walked away from the crash site without sympathy.

The woman, identified as 27-year-old Kayla Quinn, said her car was swiped on the driver’s side and watched the crash unfold.

Multiple vehicles spun or flipped in the air, per the Dallas Morning News, while Quinn saw someone from a Lamborghini pulled another victim out of a Corvette.

Quinn told the DMN a pair of white cleats were left in the back of the Lamborghini. She also said another witness saw guns and bags taken from the vehicles before the five men left the scene. 

‘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?’

Quinn reportedly provided a video of the incident to the DMN showing a man in a white t-shirt walk by the crash site, allegedly from the Lamborghini.

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