Rashi Rice apologizes for 'my role' in crash, while injured couple's lawyer reportedly


There's a lot left to be sorted out in the crash that reportedly caused Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice's car, and it appears at least two people involved don't want him to get off easy.

A Dallas couple injured in a hit-and-run collision Saturday have reportedly hired an attorney and are considering their legal options, according to the Dallas Morning News. The pair were reportedly on their way to a friend's 50th birthday party when two vehicles, reportedly containing Rice, collided with his white Lexus SUV.

The couple's car reportedly spun on the highway until it crashed into a wall (You can watch the incident in the video here, Both were reportedly taken to the hospital and are now recovering at home. The woman reportedly suffered a “significant laceration” above her left eye, requiring multiple stitches in her eyelid, as well as swelling and bruising to her right leg, while both suffered post-concussion symptoms.

From the morning news:

“They're angry about the situation,” Walker said in an interview. “From our perspective and their perspective, it doesn't really matter who the people are, but the human decency element of it – the right thing to do is to make sure no one is harmed and comply with their legal obligations.”

Other victims in the crash reportedly include a 27-year-old woman and her 4-year-old son, whose Hyundai Accent was left “undriveable,” and a separate victim in an Uber who was T-boned.

Rice released a statement on Monday confirming that he was involved in the accident, is cooperating with authorities, and will “take all necessary steps to responsibly address this situation.”

He issued an additional statement on Wednesday apologizing for his role in the accident, without specifying what exactly his “part” was.

“Today I met with Dallas PD investigators regarding Saturday's accident,” Rice said on Instagram. “I take full responsibility for this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to all those affected by Saturday's accident.”

A key question about the accident is whether or not Rice was driving the black Lamborghini. According to TMZ, he also owns a crashed black Corvette, but he leased the Lamborghini from a company called Classic Lifestyle for a price of $1,749 per day.

Kyle Coker, the attorney representing Classic Lifestyle, reportedly told TMZ that Rice was the only person allowed to drive the Lamborghini and that the receiver had promised to pay for the car in full after the accident.

The occupants of both the cars that caused the accident were reportedly caught on video fleeing on foot. Both the Chiefs and the NFL have confirmed they are aware of the situation, while police are still investigating and have not officially identified any suspects.
