Rashee Rice’s Lawyer Confirms Car Crash Involvement, Expects Charges Against Chiefs WR

Rashee Rice was driving the Lamborghini involved in a major crash on Saturday, his lawyer confirmed today. Here's what's next for the Chiefs WR.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice was driving the Lamborghini involved in a multi-car crash in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday, his lawyer told reporters at a press conference on Thursday.

“Mr. Rice acknowledged that he was driving the Lamborghini, that was the question that was asked (by Dallas police),” Rice’s attorney, Royce West, said today. “He responded to that. That he was driving the Lamborghini.”

While Rice has not yet been charged, West expects his client to face charges shortly.

Rice’s leased Lamborghini hit a center median on Saturday after speeding alongside a Corvette, starting a series of crashes that involved six vehicles. The individuals in the Corvette and the Lamborghini fled the scene of the accident. Four people in other cars were treated for injuries.

Rice has reached out to some of the victims involved and may publicly address the incident next week, West said.

“But for the grace of God, someone could have been injured. I mean seriously injured,” West said. “(Rice) understands that. He appreciates it. That’s why he wanted to come out and say that he’s going to be responsible for making certain that the victims are made whole.”

West did not respond to a question about why Rice and others left the crash scene.

Rice issued a statement on Instagram earlier this week, admitting his involvement in the accident without indicating that he was driving the vehicle.

“Today I met with Dallas PD investigators regarding Saturday’s accident,” Rice wrote on Wednesday.

“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.”

A Dallas couple injured in the accident is considering legal action, as the Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday. Tennessee Walker, a partner at Patterson Law Group, told DMN they were traveling to a friend’s birthday party when they were hit by two cars.

“They’re angry at the situation,” Walker said. “From our perspective and their perspective, it doesn’t really matter who the people are but just the human decency element of it — the decent thing to do is to make sure that no one is harmed and comply with your legal obligations.”

The NFL indicated it is monitoring Rice’s involvement in Saturday’s crash.

Rice, a second-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, led the Chiefs with seven touchdown catches and finished second to Travis Kelce in receptions (79) and receiving yards (938) in his rookie season.
