Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashi Rice says he takes “full responsibility” for his role in a Dallas car crash that left four people with minor injuries.

Rice was renting a Lamborghini SUV that police said was speeding with a Corvette on the North Central Expressway on Saturday.

Police said the accident ultimately involved six cars, and the occupants of the Lamborghini and Corvette left the scene without providing information or determining whether anyone needed medical attention.

“Today I met with Dallas Police investigators regarding Saturday's incident. I take full responsibility for my role in this matter and will continue to cooperate with necessary authorities,” Rice wrote Wednesday in an Instagram Story post.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone affected by Saturday’s incident.”

Rice's lawyer said earlier this week that the NFL player was cooperating with authorities but did not provide details.

Chiefs also said they were aware of the incident but declined further comment. Police have not released any information about other people involved in the wreck.

Kyle Coker, an attorney for the Dallas-based exotic car rental company, said Rice was renting the Lamborghini from The Classic Lifestyle. Under the terms of the lease, Rice was the only person allowed to drive the car, which he rents for about $1,750 (£1,380) a day and is worth about $250,000 (£197,000).

Rice's lawyer, state Sen. Royce West, said Rice “will take all necessary steps to address this situation in a responsible manner.” West did not respond to questions Tuesday and did not say whether Rice was driving one of the vehicles.

The Chiefs pulled a nice trick to let Rashee Rice into the end zone.

Rice was born in Philadelphia but grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, a suburb of North Richland Hills. He played college football at nearby SMU, where his senior season in 2022 put the wide receiver on the radar of NFL teams.

The Chiefs selected him in the second round of last year's draft, and he quickly became one of the only reliable options in their passing game. With exceptional speed off the line of scrimmage, Rice finished second on the team behind Travis Kelce with 73 receptions for 938 yards while leading the Chiefs with seven touchdown receptions.

Maybe Rice was better in the playoffs. He had 26 catches for 262 yards and a touchdown, including six catches for 39 yards against San Francisco in the Super Bowl, helping the Chiefs win their third Lombardi Trophy in five years.
