Kansas City Chiefs’ Rashee Rice suspected in connection with 6-vehicle crash in Dallas

Police were searching for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice in connection with a major multivehicle accident Saturday evening in northeast dallas, law enforcement officials confirmed to The Dallas Morning News.

A vehicle believed to be registered or leased to Rice was involved in a crash in the 6600 block of North Central Expressway at about 6:20 p.m., officials told The News. The law enforcement officials said police are looking for Rice, and a police call sheet obtained by The News confirmed that law enforcement was searching for him in connection with the accident.

His alleged involvement in the crash is unclear. Dallas police spokeswoman Kristin Lowman said the preliminary investigation determined a driver in a Chevrolet Corvette and a driver in a Lamborghini were speeding in the far left lane, near University Boulevard, where both lost control of their vehicles.

A six-vehicle accident Saturday in northeast Dallas left at least four injured. Police suspect the crash may have involved Kansas City Chiefs' Rashee Rice.

Lowman said the Lamborghini traveled onto the shoulder and “hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles.” The occupants of both the Lamborghini and the Corvette left the crash site on foot without stopping to see if anyone needed medical help or providing any of their information, Lowman said.

Two drivers were treated at the crash site for minor injures, and two other people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. Lowman said police are still working to identify the suspects.

The police call sheet obtained by The News listed Rice as the suspected driver of the Corvette. Spokespeople for the Kansas City Chiefs have not responded to multiple requests by phone and email for comment. A representative from Rice’s marketing team also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Rice was not appearing in Dallas County jail records as of about 4 p.m. Sunday. It was not clear if he is suspected of any charges.

Bill Nabors, who was driving on the expressway when the crash occurred, captured the collision and shared dash camera footage showing a black Lamborghini race down the road, closely tailed by a black Corvette.

The Lamborghini speeds next to a white Hyundai Accent and appears to push it toward the center lanes. The Corvette behind it turns toward the center lane and a plume of smoke appears as it spins the Hyundai Accent back to the left.

The Corvette crashes into another vehicle, spinning it to the left, then collides with the right shoulder of the expressway and comes to a stop.

The Lamborghini stops in one of the center lanes facing oncoming traffic with its hazards on. Three people exit the passenger side of the Lamborghini and walk toward the shoulder. Two other cars are stalled along the shoulder ahead.

Kayla Quinn, 27, told The News in an interview that she was driving home from the Fort Worth Zoo with her 4-year-old son on Saturday when the crash began. Quinn said her car was side swiped on the driver’s side.

She said her car mirror shattered, which prevented her from seeing much as she tried to pull over. Multiple vehicles spun or flipped in the air, she recalled. After she came to a stop, she looked back and saw men from the Lamborghini appear to pull someone out of the Corvette.

Five men from the Lamborghini and the Corvette then walked away on the shoulder of the expressway. Quinn said they appeared to be headed to a nearby train station.

“No one stopped,” Quinn told The News. “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?”

Videos she provided The News shows a man in a white T-shirt carrying a bag walk by the crash site. Quinn said he was from the Lamborghini.

“You guys alright?” someone behind the camera asks.

“Yeah, my chest,” the man replies.

“Where you guys heading?” the person taking the video asks. The man doesn’t appear to reply.


Four other men trailing behind the man in the white T-shirt walk by moments later. One man has something over his head, which obscures some of his face. Another man has his arm around someone else’s shoulders as they walk.

“You guys alright?” the person taking the video asks again. “Yeah,” someone replies.

“We gotta get up there though,” the man whose face is obscured says, pointing up to a road above the expressways.

“You guys just going to leave it?” the person taking the video asks. Nobody appears to reply.

The group talks about calling 911 after the men from the Corvette and Lamborghini pass them.

Other videos Quinn provided show damage to several cars, including a wide dent in the driver’s side of Quinn’s white Hyundai Accent. The video shows the mirror next to the driver’s side hanging off the car, and the vehicle’s front and back bumpers are dislodged.

Quinn told The News a pair of white cleats were left in the back of the Lamborghini. She said one of the other witnesses said they took guns and bags from the vehicles before they left.

Quinn said her son was shaking and crying but was checked out by first responders at the crash site and was OK. She said her left shoulder still hurts, but her burst of adrenaline distracted her when the accident happened.

“I was shocked,” she said. ”I really couldn’t feel much pain.”

She said she was stuck at the crash site for about five hours — until about 11:30 p.m. — as police investigated. Her car is “un-drivable,” she said, noting that the other cars were also seriously damaged.

She said she’s upset the occupants of the Lamborghini and Corvette walked away seemingly without sympathy and put at least two children in danger, adding she wants them to face child endangerment charges.

“I’m just trying to keep my faith and just — you know, what is done in the dark comes to light, it’s all going to come face forward,” Quinn said. “You made it worse for yourself. You thought you got away, but y’all didn’t get away.”

“I’m just blessed that I was able to walk out of there because it could have been so much worse.”

Marc Lenahan, a lawyer who said he’s representing one of the victims of the crash, told The News he’s gathering information about what happened. He didn’t name his client, but said they were a passenger in an Uber that was T-boned.

Lenahan said he was still working to confirm details, but his understanding is the Lamborghini was being rented. He said he had reached out to the actual owner of the Lamborghini, who he said was not involved.

“It is terrible, but it is not surprising,” Lenahan said. “Everybody in DFW knows that part of Dallas is a magnet for joyriding.”

Rice grew up in North Richland Hills and attended Richland High School, where he was a three-star recruit before committing to SMU. There he became one of the most successful wide receivers in Mustangs history, fifth all-time in yards among SMU receivers.

He was a second-round draft pick in 2023 by the Kansas City Chiefs and almost immediately thrived with quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Super Bowl champion Chiefs.

He was second among NFL rookie receivers in yards. In the Chiefs’ overtime win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII in February, Rice caught six passes for 39 yards to help Kansas City to the title.
