DALLAS (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs’ player Rashee Rice was the driver of one of two speeding sports cars who left after causing a chain-reaction crash on a Dallas highway over the weekend, the wide receiver’s attorney said Thursday.

Why Rice left the crash Saturday was “a good question that’s still being investigated,” said Rice’s attorney, state Sen. Royce West, but he declined to elaborate. West expects charges to be filed against Rice, who was driving a Lamborghini sport utility vehicle, he said at a news conference without his client.

“He’s a young man that made a mistake,” West said Thursday, adding that Rice’s “heart goes out” to those who were injured. The crash involved the Lamborghini, a Corvette and four other vehicles and left four people with minor injuries, police said.

Police reported that the driver of the Corvette departed the scene without verifying if anyone required medical assistance or providing their contact details. According to West, the Corvette is registered to Rice; however, details about the driver have not been disclosed.

Rice took to his Instagram Story on Wednesday, acknowledging his accountability for his involvement in the accident.

Authorities stated that both the Corvette and Lamborghini drivers were speeding in the far left lane when they lost control. Subsequently, the Lamborghini veered onto the shoulder, colliding with the center median wall and triggering the chain reaction.

West assured that Rice, aged 23, is committed to facilitating the recovery process for those affected, including addressing injuries and property damage.

Investigators are currently conducting interviews with witnesses, victims, and potentially involved individuals.

The Lamborghini involved in the incident was leased by Rice from The Classic Lifestyle, a Dallas-based exotic car rental company, according to attorney Kyle Coker.

Rice, originally from Philadelphia but raised in North Richland Hills, a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas, played collegiate football at nearby SMU. Following a standout senior season in 2022, he garnered attention from NFL teams, leading to his selection by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the draft last year. Rice quickly established himself as a reliable target in the Chiefs’ passing game.
