KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Court TV) — An attorney for a survivor of Saturday’s multi-vehicle hit and run in Dallas told Court TV that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice owns a Corvette involved in the crash, but the attorney has “zero reliable information” confirming Rice was behind the wheel during the collision.

Marc C. Lenahan told Court TV that his client – who wishes to remain anonymous at this point – was released from a hospital Monday with a concussion. Lenahan said he is working to identify the parties involved to determine if settlements can be reached out of court or if lawsuits will be necessary.

Lenahan told Court TV he spoke to the owner of a Lamborghini SUV involved in the crash. Lenahan said the owner told him he was not in the SUV during the incident because it had been rented out to a private client through a luxury dealership for $1,749 a day. “It’s the owner’s understanding that the shop has rented it to the same customer before,” Lenahan said.

Citing law enforcement sources, the Dallas Morning News reported that police are searching for Rice in connection with the incident. A police call sheet lists Rice as the owner of the Corvette involved, the News reported. Court TV has requested the police call sheet.

Rice’s connection to the crash is unclear. In response to Court TV’s emails to Dallas Police asking to confirm if they are searching for Rice or if he is listed as the owner of the Corvette, Dallas Police spokesperson Jennifer Lowman said:

“The investigation is ongoing and detectives are working to identify the suspects.”

Court TV received the following statement from Rice’s lawyer saying he is cooperating with the investigation:

“On behalf of Rashee Rice, his thoughts are with everyone impacted by the automobile accident on Saturday. Rashee is cooperating with local authorities and will take all necessary steps to address this situation responsibly.”

Earlier Monday,  Dallas Police Department gave the following statement to Court TV:

On March 30, 2024, at about 6:25pm, Dallas Police were called to a multi-vehicle accident in the 6600 block of northbound North Central Expressway. The preliminary investigation determined two drivers, one in a Corvette, the other in a Lamborghini, were speeding in the far-left lane, near University Boulevard. The drivers lost control and the Lamborghini traveled onto the shoulder and hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles. (Six vehicles total involved) The occupants of the Lamborghini and the Corvette all ran from the scene without stopping to determine if anyone needed medical help or providing their information. Two of the involved drivers were treated at the scene by Dallas Fire Rescue for minor injuries and two occupants of another vehicle were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The investigation and identification of the suspects are both ongoing. This case is documented under case numbers 50420-2024 & 50421-2024.
