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

Rice, who was leasing a Lamborghini SUV, sped off with the Corvette on North Central Expressway on Saturday, police said.

The crash ultimately involved six vehicles, police said, and the occupants of the Lamborghini and Corvette left the scene without providing information or determining if anyone needed medical attention.

“I met with Dallas PD investigators today regarding Saturday's accident. I take full responsibility for my role in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities,” Rice wrote in a post to her Instagram Story on Wednesday.

“I apologize to all those affected by Saturday's accident.”

Rice's attorney said earlier this week that the NFL player is cooperating with authorities, but did not elaborate.

The principals said they were aware of the accident but declined further comment. Police have not released any information about the other people involved in the crash.

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

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

The Chiefs ran a beautiful trick play to get 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 an outrageous 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 their most reliable options in the passing game. With exceptional quickness, Rice finished second on the team to Travis Kelce with 73 receptions for 938 yards while leading the Chiefs with seven touchdown receptions.

Rice could have been even 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.
