Rashee Rice has released a statement through his attorney as it appears he has finally made his way to the authorities following his part in causing an accident on the weekend.

The Kansas City wide receiver was being sought by police after his involvement in a speeding incident that led to a multiple-car collision in Northern Dallas on Saturday evening. Rice did not remain at the scene of the crash and was shown fleeing the scene thereafter.

It was reported on Sunday night that Rice had retained legal counsel, though it was unclear as to whether he was wanted on charges. His lawyer, Royce West, has since put out a statement claiming the player is cooperating with authorities.

The statement, which is below, was shared by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

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

A spokeswoman for Dallas police told the Dallas Morning News that the drivers of a Chevrolet Corvette and a Lamborghini were speeding on the 75 Central Expressway around 6:20 PM on Saturday and lost control of their vehicles. The Lamborghini is said to have hit the median wall, causing “a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles.”

The drivers allegedly ran from the crash site.

Rashee Rice Had An Outstanding First Season For The Chiefs

Rashee Rice played a significant role in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl win this season. Drafted as the 55th overall pick in 2023, he was second only to Travis Kelce in receptions and receiving yards, with 79 and 938 respectively, and led the team in touchdown catches with seven.

He added 26 catches and 262 yards in the postseason as Kansas City made their run at a second successive Super Bowl.
